  • NASM ACCREDITATION

    UMBC's Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music Performance, Music Composition, Jazz Studies, Music Education, and Music Technology are now accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. NASM is the only national organization that accredits music schools in higher education. Its philosophy states:

    "Music is a profession requiring talent, knowledge, skill, and dedication. Employment depends almost entirely on demonstrated competence. Success is based primarily on work rather than on credentials. Experience tells us that music, though dependent on talent, inspiration, and creativity, requires much more to function as a significant spiritual and educational force. Talent without skills, inspiration without knowledge, and creativity without technique can account for little but lost potential.

    The primary purpose of schools of music is to help individual students turn talent, inspiration, creativity, and dedication into significant potential for service to the development of musical culture in its multiple dimensions. Therefore, the focus of NASM's work is on issues of musical content and educational substance as applied to the preparation of music professionals."

    UMBC is proud to join this organization of educational institutions training the next generation of musicians!
