About the Department
The Department of Music offers a dynamic program to develop the musicians of tomorrow. The emphasis is on individual instruction by faculty members who are well known performers and scholars. In addition, students work with visiting professional artists and ensembles-in-residence who perform nationally and internationally.
Students may earn a bachelor of arts degree in music, specializing in performance (piano, voice, classical guitar, orchestral and jazz instruments), theory/composition or history/literature.
The Department of Music, set in the midst of historic Charleston and working with Spoleto Festival USA, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, offers students a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere usually found only in major urban centers.
