ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The music program provides an engagement with artistic expression that reflects the integrity of the human spirit. Students who seek this degree have interests in performance studies, pedagogy, theory or history or want a solid general background in music. Some students choose to pursue graduate study upon completion of the degree, and others choose to double major or add a minor in an area outside of music. The music major certifies a graduate to teach, work in the music industry and/or serve in their own individual community’s artistic life. The institution is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.

WHY SHOULD I MAJOR IN MUSIC?

The workplace requires people who can collaborate.  That’s what musicians do on a daily basis in every ensemble that they are ever in. Even more so, they listen to one another. Musicians also are experts at overcoming failure, because they practice things, they get something new for the first time and they’re going to fail. But they practice, you improve, you learn new techniques until you get it right. Musician are able to perform, to take an idea, to take a message and communicate it in front of an audience, whether it’s in front of a few or hundreds of people.
