The curriculum in music is designed to meet the needs of students preparing for careers in performance history, theory, ethnomusicology, and music education. Music majors are required to give a recital (or equivalent) their last semester at the college as their MUS 490: Independent Study.
Students are encouraged to take such non-music courses as: Fine Arts 398; History 110, 201, and 272; Political Science 101; and Sociology 101.
The Performing & Fine Arts Digital Lab (1A01) is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with computers, synthesizers, and sound sampling. The Lab is made available to students enrolled in Music 225: Computer Music.
