As part of the College of Arts and Humanities, the School of Music offers undergraduate and graduate musicians superior performance training, while emphasizing the importance of the combined scholar, performer, educator and arts advocate in the 21st century.
Graduates enter the professional world with command of their art form, prepared to build a career in the arts and eager to nurture creative expression for the future.
Only nine miles from Washington, D.C., and 30 miles from downtown Baltimore, Maryland, the location advantage adds significant value to the University of Maryland experience. Students enrich the culturally diverse region as teachers and performers through the School of Music's community engagement programs.
While completing their degree, many undergraduate and graduate students start their professional careers freelancing with local orchestras, teaching privately and interning with major arts and humanities organizations such as the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institution, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Library of Congress.
