Music Studies

Music Studies is a more generalized concentration allowing for individualized advisor/student design of upper-division Special Studies courses.  Many students in this curriculum will enter the music industry business, some facet of the private teaching world, music and arts management, or a profession outside of music.  Students who are electing to double-major within the college/university frequently choose this sequence.  The department recognizes the need for and value of a flexible and individualized concentration as consistent with the orientation of a liberal arts institution.

Students are reminded to consult with their music department faculty advisor prior to each registration.
