Music Department

advent-vespersThe Music Department at Augsburg College 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).
