The performance curriculum prepares students for a career in performance in their respective performance areas. The general music degree is a music major in combination with a minor in another field of study. All curricula prepares students for advanced studies at the graduate level. In addition, the department offers courses for non-majors, some of which satisfy common core requirements. All music ensembles are open to non-majors by audition.
