The Department of Music at CWRU offers undergraduate students a wide range of opportunities for musical study and participation, many of which take advantage of our Joint Music Program with the Cleveland Institute of Music.
We are one of the few universities to combine conservatory-level training with the advantages of a liberal arts education, and offer the following programs:
- The Music (BA) degree can be combined with any other degree program that CWRU offers: double major/dual degree/secondary major.
- The Music Education (BS) degree is a pre-professional degree that ultimately leads to teacher licensure (this is taken as an independent degree program).
- The minor in music does not require an audition and our many music ensembles are open to all students regardless of major. Music lessons are offered to non-majors for a fee.
All degree programs and require submission of the Arts Supplement (digital questionnaire/video audition). The Music Education (BS) application also requires a live interview/audition component. If you are interested in applying to any of these programs, please click here to be directed to the application and audition procedures.
