Department of Music

Merging the intense focus of a conservatory with a broad education in the liberal arts, the music program at the College of Charleston is further enhanced by its location in a city renowned for its cultural heritage and devotion to the performing arts. Strong academic preparation coupled with superior musical training places our program in a unique niche. Music majors, who can choose to concentrate in performance, theory/composition, or music history, benefit from small class sizes, ample practice and performance space and one-on-one tutelage from faculty.
