The mission of the School of Music is to educate men and women for the music professions of the church and of the world by providing them with an integrated educational and artistic atmosphere which preserves and transmits the religious and cultural values of this culture's artistic traditions, religious beliefs expressed through those traditions, and a sense of beauty inherent to those traditions. The School of Music of Baylor University is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music and a member of the Texas Association of Music Schools. Courses and degree plans are designed to satisfy requirements of both accrediting agencies. Degree programs leading to the bachelor of music education degree conform to certification requirements of the Texas Education Agency. The purpose of the School of Music is to equip its students with a thorough background of music training based on an understanding of history, theory, and practical application in the various fields of music; to provide performance experience of high quality while at the same time achieving and maintaining a reasonable balance between meeting the educational needs of the students and serving the cultural needs of the school and community; and to contribute to the intellectual and cultural life of the community.
