Music Ministry, BA


Study theology and music as you lead a life of worship...

If it’s your calling to lead others into worship through music, this major will prepare you for a career as a church musician and worship leader.

You’ll take both theology and music courses – and you’ll have an intense practicum of observation, planning, and teaching in a church setting under the mentorship of an experienced church musician. You’ll be encouraged to be involved in one of Malone’s many performance groups, and will participate in frequent recitals.
