The music department embraces the study and enjoyment of music as necessary for healthy and enriched living. Majoring in music prepares you for a variety of careers. Our flexible programs give you opportunities to double major in the arts, humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences.

The Department of Music has been an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) since 1974.


We offer three programs of study that empower you to follow your musical passions and prepare yourself for success in the 21st century.

WSSU is a great school for me for music. The faculty here are truly caring and still check up on me even when I have completed their classes.
