The University of Maryland School of Music provides a world-class, professional musical education within the context of a liberal arts college and a major research university. Multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees allow students to pursue music as artists, scholars and educators.
A Real-World Education for Life Beyond the Practice Room
As part of the College of Arts and Humanities, we offer undergraduate and graduate musicians superior performance training, while emphasizing the importance of the combined scholar, performer, educator and arts advocate in the 21st century. Our graduates enter the professional world with command of their art form, prepared to build a career in the arts and eager to nurture creative expression for the future.
The music performance minor allows students pursuing another major to continue their involvement in music and receive high-level training in instrumental or vocal performance.
Music & Culture
The music and culture minor offers students from any discipline or major the opportunity to study the ways in which human cultural diversity is represented through music.
The arts leadership minor provides students pursuing either music or another major with the opportunity to acquire the practical and strategic skills to become leaders in the arts.
