Consistent with the broad mission of the university, our aim is to produce responsible citizens, well-informed about the past, and able to contribute to the future.

The William D. Hall and Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Conservatory of Music offers several undergraduate degrees ranging from the Bachelor of Arts in music to pre-professional programs like the Bachelor of Music in composition, Bachelor of Music (Pre-Music Education Certification), and Bachelor of Music in performance (conducting, guitar, keyboard collaborative arts, percussion, piano, strings, winds & brass, and vocal). Additionally, the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music offers three music minors: the Minor in General Music, the Minor in Film Music, and the Minor in Music Technology.  The College of Performing Arts at Chapman University is also pleased to present its first graduate program in music, the Master of Music (M.M.) in Keyboard Collaborative Arts under the direction of Dr. Louise Thomas.
