Music programs

As a music major, you’ll study both historic and modern traditions and perform a variety of Western and non-Western music. We pursue excellence in the study, practice and performance of each piece of music, so you’ll be challenged and encouraged by your professors, peers and private tutors as you scale new heights with your musical ability and artistry.

Music Ministry Minor

The Music Ministry Minor allows students pursuing other areas of study the chance to learn about the history, practice, performance, and theology of music for worship, preparing them to contribute to a church music program with insight and experience.
