The music department offers students from all disciplines opportunities to develop an understanding and appreciation of music through a wide range of courses and performance activities. Students may elect to pursue a major or minor in music, or to participate at whatever level their background and interest dictates. Faculty members are active performers and scholars who take a special interest in personalized instruction.

The curriculum includes offerings in theory, composition, performance, history, and literature. In addition to the more conventional areas of music study, the department offers opportunities to study world music traditions, jazz and popular styles, and electronic music. The Williams Center for the Arts includes rehearsal and practice facilities, an electronic music studio, a score and multimedia library, concert hall, and computer instruction facilities. Students have opportunities to perform in choral groups as well as jazz, brass, string, wind, and percussion ensembles. The artist-in-residence program brings noted artists from all over the world to interact with students through workshops and classes.
