At Manchester University, we believe that music makes an enormous contribution to the quality of human life. The study of music and of the fine arts is an integral part of a liberal arts education. All Manchester students are exposed to the fine arts.
Manchester offers programs of study in music education, applied music, music theory/composition and general music. All programs emphasize excellence in performance and the importance of encouraging others to participate in and appreciate many types of music. The 26-hour music minor affords students the ability to combine music study with other majors.
