2019-2020 Undergraduate Catalog

Music

The Academic Music Program, housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, offers music elective courses, individual private lessons, and performing ensembles. The program provides the environment and opportunity to hear, experience, and participate in the art of music. The study of music both as a knowledgeable listener, creator, and/or performer nurtures an important human aesthetic dimension.

Music, in its many cultural manifestations, touches upon the enduring questions of human meaning and value. It serves as an opportunity to develop imagination, creativity, and understanding and gives students the opportunity to use and further help their own skills and talents. As a non-major program, the program’s goal is to encourage students to experience music so that a foundation for continued learning, appreciation, and enrichment is created.
