The Department of Music provides an intensive course of study for music majors within Notre Dame’s rich liberal arts tradition. Our students engage performance, music theory, music history, and ethnomusicology in collaboration with a professionally accomplished faculty of performers and scholars.

In addition, the Department contributes to the broader musical life on campus through course offerings and abundant ensemble opportunities for majors and non-majors alike. Formal study of music at Notre Dame is complemented by the Department's extensive presentation of faculty and guest artist concerts, scholarly lectures, and student performances.
