B.S. in Music & Worship
Residential Music & Worship Studies Degree
Do you sense God’s call upon your life to lead worship? Today’s local churches need music ministers and worship leaders to take charge of a multi-faceted, changing ministry. These ministries no longer require personnel exclusively equipped as musicians. They require professionals who have broad experience in worship teaching, worship training, team management and discipleship, worship evangelism, principles of marketing, technology, drama, and music.
Our Bachelor of Science in Music & Worship Studies offers core music courses to develop musical skills, while also providing six core worship courses in order to prepare you to be a biblically grounded worship leader. The program of study also includes internships and a multitude of performance opportunities; all designed to foster collaboration and creativity.
This degree is taught from a Christian worldview by experienced professors committed to sound evangelical theology. This sets Liberty University’s Commercial Music curriculum apart and brings a significant influence on the commercial music industry as a whole.
The Liberty University School of Music features 50 state-of-the-art practice rooms, smart classrooms, and a world-class concert hall. It also features the 1,600-square-foot Mathena Recording Studio, which offers an extraordinary level of music production options and studio project services for students and professional artists, alike.
