The Music Department at Augsburg University offers professional music training in the context of a liberal arts curriculum through three degrees and five music majors. Students receive a solid foundation of music history and repertoire, music theory and aural skills, and numerous performance opportunities. It also offers a variety of music courses and ensemble experiences that are available to both music & non-music majors and courses that meet Augsburg’s Liberal Arts Foundation requirements.
Augsburg’s location in the heart of a major artistic center makes it an ideal place to study music, and the music faculty seek and encourage opportunities that connect the campus and the greater arts communities. These opportunities allow students to explore the links between theory and applied knowledge and may take many forms, including internships; community performances; music therapy practica; community-based learning projects; required off-campus performance and concert attendance assignments; or travel and study within and outside the United States.
The music department is an institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA).
Augsburg Explore Music Days
Can you imagine life without music? It’s OK — neither can we.
So join us for Augsburg’s Music Exploration Days on Thursday, January 25 and Friday, January 26! You can grab lunch, meet with music faculty, sit in on studio and theory classes, and even join us for evening rehearsals. All entering students are considered for scholarships, whether or not they are majoring in music (an audition is required for consideration.)
Please note for all interested musicians: In case it impacts which day you sign up for, Thursday’s rehearsal lineup includes Jazz Band and Orchestra, while Friday offers options for Choirs and Concert Band.
We hope to see you there!
