Let your song uplift their souls

Did you know many of the greatest vocalists and musicians got their start in church choirs? Join one of our spiritual communities and add your voice. Engage your creativity and express your passion by delivering communal music for real church services. Hone your talent before live and appreciative audiences. Music is the heart of faith for many, and when you join a choir, you receive the gratitude of a community truly touched by the gift of song.

All of our church music minors receive internship opportunities and gain real-world experience. Internships give you hands-on experience choosing the right music for church services and events, developing music programs and organizing church performances.

Joining a choir also gives you instant community and spiritual support, making the transition to campus life smoother. Learn more about Susquehanna University’s diverse and inclusive religious and spiritual life, which offers a place for worship, and singing out your heart, for everyone.

Woman singing in church

“Pursuing a minor in Church Music will help open doors for me as a music educator that I may have not been able to imagine otherwise. It will allow me to grow into an even more well-rounded musician as it will expose me to types of religious music that I may not be able to get an experience with in other contexts.”
