From music theory to technique to conducting and arranging, the music curriculum offers a wide range of courses for the music major or the non-major who wishes to include music as part of his or her college experience. We offer a wide array of performance and participation opportunities, including:
Students studying music become familiar with the traditions of Western and non-Western music through theoretical analysis, research, performance, and historical survey.
The curriculum fosters the development of the critical ability necessary to understand those traditions. Students experience the unique relationship between research and performance in music. Theoretical and practical courses that provide a sound academic background in music are available for those who intend to pursue graduate study, teach, or fulfill general education requirements.
