Music Degree Programs

In addition to learning to play music in the classroom, students also have the opportunity to take courses in music history, music theory, improvisation, conducting and composition, among others.

Each area of music emphasis available is taught by a professor who specializes in that area. Professors, not teaching assistants, teach all courses. Large ensemble rooms are available to the music classes that require the space and accommodations.
