Our music program will not only give you a deep appreciation of the complexity and richness of music—from its basic rules and its range of styles to its performance—but it will also prepare you for a variety of careers. Many of our graduates pursue master's and doctoral degrees in performance, composition, musicology, music production and technology and other related fields. Others go on to become music professors, arts administrators, opera singers, cantors, orchestral musicians, composers, conductors, musical theater directors, TV and record producers, media and digital arts specialists—not to mention doctors, attorneys and teachers.
