The Department’s curriculum is designed around the national standards outlined by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). The PLNU Department of Music has held NASM accreditation since 2002. Our accreditation is up for renewal in 2018. Each degree program has been crafted to meet the competencies and standards that are summarized in the NASM Handbook.
