Connecting a Network of Artists
A degree in music provides much more than the training you need to become a professional musician. It instills in students rigor, discipline, patience, drive and focus, and also develops their social and emotional intelligence.
Music students go on to become performers, composers, conductors, recording professionals and scholars. They also pursue careers in education and arts administration, and many undergraduates continue their training with master's degrees and beyond in graduate school.
