We offer undergraduates the opportunity to major or minor in music, affording students across the university access to first-rate faculty and providing performance opportunities in a wide range of ensembles. Our graduate programs in composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, and music theory have produced leading scholars and award-winning artists.
Penn graduate students were very active at this year’s American Musicological Society and Society for Ethnomusicology conferences. We’re thrilled to have been such a strong presence at these important gatherings.
