    How do you envision your musical education? You can customize it with four music degree programs and the option for double majors and double degrees, each allowing for a second area of emphasis in any one of our 49 majors at DePauw.

    The DePauw University School of Music provides an excellent musical and intellectual foundation that prepares undergraduate musicians to be adaptive leaders, equipped to actively engage their communities and pursue a breadth of career paths.

    We believe artists should embrace diversity, foster inclusivity, and raise cultural awareness, and this shapes our community and curriculum.

    In partnership with DePauw’s College of Liberal Arts, we encourage students to integrate creative and practical musical skills with critical thinking and intellectual inquiry, empowering our graduates for a lifetime of learning.
