Student Learning Outcomes

Mission Statement

The mission of the School of Music at California Baptist University is to create a Christ-based learning environment that provides the highest order of education in all essential aspects of music, to establish a foundation for life-long growth in music, and to offer programs and degrees that are tradition-based but future-oriented.


  1. To provide a high quality of music education and training for undergraduate and graduate students
  2. To equip students with performance and theoretical musical skills that will enable them to be successful musicians
  3. To help students gain a historical/cultural perspective on the world of music
  4. To encourage critical thinking about music (i.e. analysis, critical listening, performance evaluation)
  5. To enable students to grow musically, so that they not only leave CBU with a better understanding of music than when they arrived but also can communicate music to a wide and diverse populace.
