With seven distinctive music degree programs and additional certificate options, our students find their path to professional success through a blending of creative, performative, scholarly, and entrepreneurial experiences designed to train the next generation of music professionals. 

College of Fine Arts (CFA) Scholarships are offered to students based on their talent and potential for contribution to the School of Music. Scholarships are determined after completion of an audition. If you are interested in playing or singing in an ensemble, but not majoring or minoring in music, you may also audition to be considered for a scholarship.
