» Why Choose Music As A Major?

Music is a multi-billion dollar industry offering a vast array of career opportunities. Music jobs are found in many different fields, including entertainment, healthcare, education, radio and television, and business, to name a few. 

Music graduates can work in songwriting, teaching, booking agencies, and music stores, and become performers, disc jockeys, sound and audio technicians, and instrument repair technicians, to name a few. Wherever your interests and strengths lie within the field of music, there are many career opportunities open to you.

Our mission in the William D. Hall and Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Conservatory of Music is to provide education in music with an emphasis on traditional academic disciplines, combined with the development of personal performance skills, all within the setting of a liberal arts institution. We offer the Bachelor of Arts in music as well as the Bachelor of Music with emphases in composition, music education, and performance (conducting, instrumental—solo piano, collaborative piano, guitar, strings, woodwinds and brass, percussion—and vocal). We also strive to enrich the artistic atmosphere of the campus and community and to provide opportunities for creative and scholarly excellence.
