Poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “Music is the universal language of mankind.” As such, the study of music fosters an understanding of global perspectives and historical events in students.  As students study music theory, music history, music education or applied music for performance they broaden both their appreciation and understanding of diverse cultures, history and the progress of the human spirit.

Career and Employment Outlook
