About the Department of Music

USD offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with emphases in performance, music theory and composition, and music history. Our curriculum includes a broad range of courses, from early chant to cutting edge modern music, symphonic, choral, chamber and solo performance, world music, computer music, sound art, and innovative interdisciplinary courses exploring music in relation to politics, art, literature, religion and cultural studies. Within the context of a liberal arts institution, music students receive a broad training as musicians, thinkers and citizens, developed through USD's strong core curriculum and the the Department of Music's rigorous history, theory and performance requirements.

Students can also look forward to an eclectic offering of concerts at USD and in San Diego, and close interaction with faculty and guest artists in master classes and other special events.

There are several performing ensembles for the USD community, including Choral Scholars, University Choir, USD Symphony, and USD Chamber Music, all of which offer many performances both on campus and around the San Diego community, and in tours in the U.S. and abroad.
