Undergraduate students interested in studying either music theory or music history as their major typically enroll in our Bachelor of Music degree program. This curriculum provides ample opportunity to study applied performance and ensembles, as well as a primary focus on research about important music topics. The academic faculty in the Glenn Korff School of Music publish regularly in the most prestigious journals, encyclopedias and book publishers. They likewise present their scholarship around the world at important conferences of learned societies.

Our composition students most frequently enroll in our Bachelor of Music degree, although UNL is among very few institutions that permits and encourages composers who wish to achieve certification to teach music in the public and private schools to earn the BME degree.
