Why Study Music
Music is everywhere. Besides the obvious CDs and iPods, music is heard on the radio and television, in movies, and even in elevators. Music is performed in a variety of venues from concert halls to small clubs. Music is taught in schools, used in business, and is a therapy in
hospitals and nursing homes. It provides recreation for millions of people who play instruments and participate in community bands, choruses and orchestras.
Why Study Music at Ship
Department of Music and Theatre Arts offers a minor in music. You can supplement your academic major by studying music at an in-depth level. In addition to this program, numerous courses and
performing ensembles are available to all Shippensburg University students.
Music minors are active members of the department, their ensembles, and the campus community. They are stimulated by high performance standards and ample performance opportunities. Participation in ensembles enriches your university experience and broadens your
horizons. Small classes and close interaction with caring
faculty members make the music minor at Shippensburg very attractive.
