Interestingly, religious music is a ​unique degree coming in at the 321st most popular major. Last year, there were 304 religious music degrees conferred.

More generally, the best region to pursue religious music is in the Southeast region with University of Mobile, Southeastern University, and Liberty University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to major in religious music is the Big South Conference with Charleston Southern University representing the conference. Based on our comprehensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best university for religious music is Baylor University.

The objectively best school does not have to be the best school for you. There are tons of angels to consider when selecting ​university.
