The degree empha- sizes individual musicianship and a proficiency in multiple musical skills, rather than developing expertise on one instrument only, as is typical of traditional performance degrees. It uses a diversity of popular musical styles to teach musicianship, rather than the classical repertoire most often used to teach musicianship in traditional university programs. All students develop a high level of core musicianship while learning the skills needed to be flexible and adaptable to the ever-changing face of contemporary music. This degree responds to the needs of the projected job growth among musicians. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 30% growth among independent musicians (2008-2018), making it the fastest-growing sector among those employed in music- related industries. The BA in Professional Music places TU at the forefront of music higher education.

The DQP is a transformative educational tool which visibly illustrates what students should be expected to know and be able to do once they earn their degrees. The goal simply is to clearly define the quality of education delivered by TU’s School of Business, ensuring that students achieve the levels of learning they need and deserve. The DQP lays out five basic areas of learning: Broad, Integrative Knowl- edge, Specialized Knowledge, Intellectual Skills, Applied Learning and Civic Learning. Each area serves as a foundational component to learn- ing and Bachelor-Degree attainment, specifically a Bachelor of Business Administration, as issued by TU. Each basic area of learning is not meant to be equal, but offered in a manner consistent with our academic majors, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Program (ACBSP), the School of Business’ “Guiding Statement” and TU’s mission.

  21. 21. LAW ENFORCEMENT This major creates an understanding of criminal behavior and the values and purposes of the criminal justice system. Students prepare for admin- istrative and leadership positions by studying criminal law, agency management, and ethical issues faced by society in dealing with crime. Aca- demic preparation is complemented by an internship that provides valu- able field experience. Successful baccalaureate degree graduates in Law Enforcement must comprehend the mission, structure, goals, and operations of police agen- cies at the local, state, and federal levels in a democratic society. The prevention, repression, and control of crime in America requires that law enforcement agents appreciate the critical role they play in balancing public order and individual liberty. Critical shortages exist at all levels of police service, but perhaps no more dire than in municipal and county law enforcement.
