The departments of music in the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music, Drama, and Art seek to educate, engage, and energize students in a dynamic program that integrates classroom learning with real world performance, research, and teaching. Our variety of undergraduate and graduate majors allows each student to find his or her niche and to develop and grow into professional performing musicians, scholars, educators, and composers who are ready for a 21st century musical career.
With approximately 300 music students, the departments of music maintain a wonderful, diverse community for new students within the context of a medium-sized university. Students form relationships with their peers; these friendships become professional contacts during careers in the arts.
