Oswego's music department is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music. With programs designed to provide talented students with a wide range of experiences in music history and literature, music theory, and performance, there is something for everyone. For those who have a passion for music, a wide variety of music classes are available. It does not matter if you major in music or not.
Majors in the Music Departmentmusic department offers a Bachelor of Arts in music. Many different career options are available by combining music with another major or a minor in a related field.
Minors in the Music Department
Our music department also participates in several interdisciplinary minors, such as Arts Management, Expressive Arts Therapy and the Arts Concentration for Childhood Education. Combining various majors and minors makes your opportunities for jobs that much greater.
Certificate Programs in the Music Department
You can participate in any ensemble regardless of major, including Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, College-Community Orchestra, Festival Chorus, College Choir and State Singers. Students can also perform in annual music theatre and opera productions, and in chamber groups. In addition to our many student performances, SUNY Oswego's music department hosts many concerts given by its own faculty and other visiting professional musicians. At Oswego, we feel it is important to give you the chance to learn and work closely with those successful in the field. You will get a first hand look at what it takes and means to be an active musician.
Mu Beta Psi, a national honorary music fraternity, and Pi Kappa Lambda, a national music honor society, offer exceptional students the opportunity to provide service to the department and greater community. Through working with a group of people who share a common love for music, lifelong friends will be made and bonds will be formed.
SUNY Oswego takes pride in its rich history of talented, passionate musicians and hopes to continue this tradition with the addition of new talented students like you for years to come.
