For the past 50 years, our department has been producing highly skilled musicians. Graduates complete rigorous and extensive training, with a depth and breadth of curriculum that prepares them for a career in music. We are one of the few music programs in North America that combines studies in jazz and popular music.

Our students participate in a combination of classroom work, rehearsals, individual study and performances to develop their talents and prepare them for a career in the music industry. After their first year, students pursuing their degree select from four majors: composition, general, performance, and recording/production. After the successful completion of the first two years, students can exit the program with a diploma.
