Dr. Lori Neprud-Ardovino, Interim Chair
The Mission of the Department of Music is to enable students in music to develop a high degree of musical understanding and excellent compositional, pedagogical, and performance skills. In addition, instruction in music and music performance is offered for the non-major in recognition of the intrinsic value of music for all students. The department also offers high quality musical programming which affords opportunities for student performers and provides cultural enrichment for the university community.
No graduate degree is offered in the department; however, students pursuing a Masters of Education in Preschool through 12th Grade with certification in Music Education may take the following courses to fulfill teaching field requirements. Students who have taken courses as an undergraduate may not receive graduate credit for those courses, with the exception of internships, directed readings, and special topics. For information on the M.Ed. programs, refer to the appropriate section under the Department of Teaching, Leadership, & Technology .
