Department Overview

The Department of Music offers a BS in music education and a BA in music with specializations in performance, jazz studies, or theory/composition. In addition to the undergraduate degree offerings, the department offers a minor in music as well as courses in the general education program, focusing on western art music, music theory, jazz history, world music, and music technology. The department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.

Full- and part-time faculty specializations include bass, bassoon, cello, clarinet, composition, computer technology, euphonium, flute, guitar, harp, horn, oboe, organ, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, viola, violin, and voice.

To enroll as a music major, all students must apply separately to the Department of Music. Call the department for an application. Entrance auditions, along with a theory placement test, will be administered by members of the music faculty. Students with deficiencies in theory and/or piano may be required to take remedial courses, which would not be credited toward the degree.
