AS Christian Music Program

Program Objectives

The Christian Music concentration is designed to help you accomplish three goals:

  1. You will be familiar with your chosen instrument and be competent enough to use it in public settings.
  2. You will be able to use your understanding of the principles of music theory and music history to effectively communicate with other musicians.
  3. You will be able to cultivate an environment for personal worship and corporate worship.


The Christian Worship concentration is combined with the General Education core and the Bible core to complete the program requirements of an Associate of Science degree. The concentration is made up of four components:

  1. Christian Ministries Core, a series of courses which give you exposure to a range of ministry fields and develop your ministry skills and outlook in a systematic way.
  2. Christian Music Core, a series of courses designed to teach basic skills for anyone working in the field of Christian music.
  3. Guided Electives, a “menu” of courses, any of which would prove valuable in the field of Christian music, from which you can choose based on your personal goals and interests.
  4. Ministry Electives, an opportunity for you to diversify your curriculum by taking courses in a ministry field other than Christian music or to augment your Christian music degree by taking additional courses in that field.
