Rich in tradition, the Music Program at Limestone University seeks to promote excellence in musicianship and equip students for careers in music. Limestone offers two degrees and a minor in music while maintaining accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) since 1946. In addition, our Teacher Education Program is a Pre-Approved Educator Preparation Program for the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) and is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
The mission of the Music Program at Limestone is to provide a quality education, developing the student personally, professionally, and academically. The Music Program’s mission for the non-music major is to have the student gain an understanding of music as it relates to the liberal arts tradition and as a part of human culture and experience.
The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education provides the proper training for a teaching career. Covering a wide range of disciplines, the course of study provides the future music educator with the knowledge, skills, understanding, and attitudes necessary for becoming a successful teacher of music.
