Music (BA) Program Assessment


The York College music program enables students to a wider understanding of music making in their environments, throughout history, and around the globe. Students in the program connect their musical background with a variety of musics through performance, analysis, composition, and production. Graduates of the program will be effective musical leaders who can then apply their acquired skills in their chosen musical endeavors.


  • Analyze music, both aurally and visually, in order to recognize, interpret, and create musical structures across different genres.
  • Demonstrate foundational skills in performing on the piano and performing as part of an ensemble.
  • Develop a foundational understanding of the evolution of music making in the Western classical traditions, as well as an alternative history of music making in non-Western and popular music traditions.

The Music (BA) Program is part of the school of Arts and Sciences, Performing and Fine Arts Department
