Areas of Study

We offer applied study in piano and organ, wind, string, and percussion instruments, and voice. At Erskine, you can focus your studies to suit your interests and career goals.

  • You can earn a B.A. in Music with an emphasis in either performance or church music.
  • If you are interested in teaching, you can earn a B.S. in Music Education with an emphasis in choral or instrumental music for grades K-12. Click here for more details.

Erskine offers the opportunity to further customize your studies. With faculty assistance, students can propose alternative concentrations, which may be pursued if approved by the music faculty and the provost.


Many Erskine students studying in other fields enjoy the music minor, which offers either a concentration in a particular performance skill or a general music track.

All students, whether they are music majors, minors, or non-majors, are invited to take applied music or audition for ensembles. The music faculty at Erskine College is committed to equipping students with music skills to be used for a career or a lifetime of enjoyment.
