Music Degrees

The Division of Music is the performing arts hub at Lubbock Christian University. Students of all majors participate in our musical ensembles, and music majors receive a rigorous and well-rounded education that prepares them for careers in music performance, education, therapy, production, business, and research.

As a music major at LCU, you will be welcomed into a supportive and engaging learning environment, and mentored by talented faculty members. Our highly collaborative area balances musical tradition with innovation, all within a strong Christian foundation that drives us to achieve excellence in all that we do.  We offer degree plans in five major areas: Music Education, Music Business, Pre-Music Therapy, Worship Arts, and the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Music.
