A Place for Music in Southeast Queens
In addition to taking classes at the bustling Academic Core Building in downtown Jamaica, York College music students can easily attend performances at the Milton G. Bassin Performing Arts Center on campus, study and research using a comprehensive collection of books and scores at the York College Library and Music History Archive, work with professional-grade recording facilities in the Digital Music Lab with sound-isolating recording booths and recording equipment, and practice in our soundproof Music Practice Rooms equipped with digital pianos.
Starting Fall 2019, we are launching a newly revamped Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, helping students to build a strong foundation in all things music - from the western classical tradition, to world music, to music theory, to performance - and beyond. In addition, all students (music majors included!) will have the option to complete the Minor in Music Production, which includes courses in recording, digital audio, and mixing / mastering.
