Requirements for the Major


Music students interested in composition pursue the Composition and Technology concentration. By including the technology components, an important part of music study for composers in the digital age, the concentration attracts students who are already using technological tools in music creation but need formal training in a liberal arts setting in order to be more viable as professionals and thinkers within their field of interest.
