Career opportunities are available in a variety of areas including urban design, city planning, environmental planning, historic preservation, and recreation. Private and public agencies with large amounts of land regularly employ landscape architects (e.g. Disney, the National Park Service, Parks & Recreation departments, botanical gardens, universities, etc.). Graduates often pursue further study, and/or certification with the state of Georgia after 18 months of professional practice.
The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at UGA is a professional degree from one of the top-ranked programs in the nation.

The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Music is designed to allow students to study music without the focus of a particular professional major (e.g. Theory, Performance, Education, etc.). The program provides a strong emphasis in applied music, theory, and music literature with a broad block of general education studies. Multiple performance opportunities including solo recitals and participation in both large and small ensembles are available.
The curriculum is grounded in studio courses in dance technique, with a 32 semester hour requirement in ballet and contemporary dance and additional requirements in jazz, tap, improvisation, and alternate forms. At the completion of technique courses, B.F.A. candidates must attain levels of performance higher than the levels required of candidates of the A.B. in Dance. Complementing the B.F.A. program's technique component are the requirement of four semesters of membership in one of the department's pre-professional performance companies and a range of courses that employ dance as a vehicle for study of the human body, the creative process, musical form, the history of world cultures, psychology, educational theory and practice, and technical design for the stage and other multi-media formats.

AP Music Theory will develop a student's ability to recognize, understand, and describe the basic materials and processes of music. The course focuses on music of the Common Practice Period (1600-1900) but will include others as well. Students' musical abilities will be developed through various listening, performance, written, creative, and analytical exercises. Students may sit for the AP Music Theory Exam and if planning to major in music in college might enroll in an advanced music theory course, depending upon the individual college's policy. (Basic knowledge of sheet music notation is strongly recommended.)
Wind Ensemble is a performance class open to the highest level instrumentalists with permission from the instructor. The class will stress rudiments of music theory, ear training, and advanced playing techniques. Some evening and after school rehearsals will be required along with three to four festivals after school or during the school day. Home practice is expected and private lessons are encouraged. Wind Ensemble members are eligible to participate in the solo/ensemble festival and may audition for All-State and All-Northwest performing groups. Members perform at school concerts and have the option of participating in the Marching Ensemble. Along with attendance and class assignments, students will be responsible for performances at three evening concerts, four to five home football games, five to six home basketball games and two to three parades as part of their grade. Failure to meet these expectations will result in a lower grade. Members must also purchase their performance attire for evening concerts and festivals. Wind Ensemble is a highly competitive hard working team of students that relies on each members' commitment to each and every festival and competition. Only the most dedicated musicians will be considered for this class. Wind Ensemble is a year-long committment.
Students holding a B.A. in Music are prepared to enter a variety of fields. The degree provides a foundation for studio teaching, music business, arts administration, performance, and church music. Students also pursue graduate study in music or other disciplines that accept a general liberal arts degree for entry.
