College of Arts and Sciences

Welcome to the Music Department

The mission of the Music Department is to offer courses of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Music and Music Education Licensure to diverse and motivated students.

The specialty courses in music develop the knowledge, musicianship, and skills needed to teach and direct music activities from early childhood through secondary school, and to pursue careers in, or related to, the music industry. The music unit program also offers instruction in music to students majoring in other disciplines as a part of the university's general core requirements. Many events, performances, and seminars are provided for the university community and the greater community of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County by faculty and students alike. Faculty members are well recognized professionally with diverse performance and educational training that encourages students to investigate and appreciate various forms of music expressions.

Further information regarding successful degree completion can be found by following the "Programs of Study" link on the left of this page. Thank you for your interest in the Music Department. We look forward to hearing from you.
