College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Music

The Department of Music offers a liberal arts degree in music, a professional degree in music (as described below), and a music minor. As a music major you will focus in one of three areas: music education, music composition, or performance. Our faculty encourage students to design a program that represents their diverse interests and backgrounds. Your coursework will cover a full range of musical study, from ancient music to the latest in music technology. More than 30 faculty members make up a department of specialists in all voice, keyboard, band, and orchestral areas. Students majoring in music are expected to participate in performing ensembles such as band, chorus, orchestra, chamber music, opera, music theatre, and jazz.
