School of Music

Semper Pro Musica

The Baylor School of Music consists of approximately 375 students studying with 65 full-time faculty and up to 20 supplemental professional adjuncts. We are large enough to offer comprehensive degree programs leading to bachelor's and master's degrees in education, performance and academic areas of music, and doctoral programs in church music, yet small enough to devote individual attention to each student.
