Music Preview Week 2020

About OSU Music

Music at Oregon State is a dynamic community full of passionate people. We offer rigorous degree programs in music taught by experts in their fields. Not only do our students receive an impressive amount of individual attention from faculty, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive program within the School of Arts and Communication. Music programs filter into the lives of students across campus, no matter what their major is. Approximately four percent of the OSU student body participates in our music program. Of those enrolled, 80 percent are in a performance ensemble and 86 percent of those enrolled in performance ensembles are not music majors. We know that accessibility to these programs enhances the lives of many Oregon State students. All Oregon State students have the opportunity to select music as a minor. Through small class sizes, students have the advantage of working closely with their music professors while studying within the larger context of a major research university. Our position in the newly formed School of Arts and Communication has allowed for growth and expansion relating to faculty and programs, and has created the opportunity for new collaborations with colleagues and disciplines within and beyond the College of Liberal Arts.
