Explore and collaborate beyond your chosen major
Our students can explore a range of course options that are outside their chosen major area of study. If you want to take a course using our leading-edge electro-acoustic lab, you don’t need to be a composition major. Classical students can participate in jazz ensembles and vice versa.
With our new facilities, opportunities to collaborate beyond music have grown. The Taché Arts Project is bringing together a spectrum of artistic programs in one facility where we encourage innovative collaborations over multiple genres, including film, sound, theatre and visual arts.

They will provide countless opportunities to develop your skills through practical experience.
And our university setting means more opportunity to shape your studies to your interests. You will enjoy a broad range of courses allowing you to develop performance skills and critical thinking that will serve you well throughout your career.
