Program Overview

If you're passionate about the role of music in worship, the church music degree at Carson-Newman prepares you for your ministry calling. Our experienced faculty will mentor you, and a robust curriculum will build your skills and knowledge to equip you as a musician or leader in the local church. Many students in the church music program continue to graduate studies in church music.

  • Carson-Newman’s Music Department offered me a unique hands-on experience that helped prepare me early on for my calling in the church and set me on a sturdy foundation towards my further graduate studies.
