Rigorous and stimulating in nature, the study of music at OSU provides an environment that both challenges students to reach their artistic potential and prepares them to function in various capacities within the professional world of music. Large enough to offer rewarding performance opportunities, the department is also small enough to provide a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty who are nationally and internationally renowned  artists and music scholars and truly dedicated to and invested in the success of each individual student. Courses to expect for this major include Music History, Music Theory, Large and Chamber Ensembles, Opera, Jazz Studies, and Marching Band Methods.
