The major that goes with anything
If music is your passion, there’s no place like Susquehanna. Enjoy small-school advantages and big-school opportunities at one of the best liberal arts music programs in the country.
We encourage you to double major. It gives you a unique educational experience and invaluable flexibility when it comes to your career.
Pair your music B.A. with psychology and pursue music therapy in graduate school. Love science as well as the arts? Major in biology and music! Want to go into the marketing or administrative side of music? Add a business or communications major.
Grow as a musician, performer and thinker
You’ll get one-on-one mentoring from teachers who are experienced educators and active performers. We’re an undergraduate-only program so you won’t compete with graduate students for performance opportunities.
Enjoy bright, airy rehearsal and performance facilities-even our practice rooms have windows! Our magnificent Stretansky Concert Hall is an ideal performance space for acoustic music.
Be ready for anything
Gain skills that cross all disciplines.
You’ll know how to work in large and small groups from being part of performance ensembles. You’ll hone leadership skills through conducting and teaching. You’ll know how to look at a subject extensively through various lenses—theoretical, historical, emotional and cultural.
You’ll be more than ready to continue your music studies at graduate schools like Peabody Institute of Music, New England Conservatory of Music or Yale University—or venture into a field related to your second major.
Our graduates have become teachers, joined symphonies and become administrators at major performance venues.
