The Music Department is one of the University’s most active departments, with many students (both music majors and nonmajors) enrolling in lessons, ensembles, and classes.
Get involved with music at Wittenberg! Take lessons, perform in a music ensemble or two, attend concerts in one of our several performance venues, or take courses in a variety of areas—music theory, music appreciation, world music, popular music, and much more.
With excellent faculty and first-rate facilities, the Music Deparment has been an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) for more than 80 years. Wittenberg is a small residential college with more Ohio Professors of the Year than any four-year university in the state! Because of our 12:1 faculty-student ratio, you will enjoy small class sizes.
After graduation, our alumni enter a wide variety of careers. They are active as teachers, performers, music therapists, church music directors and organists, composers, conductors, college professors, and music librarians. Some of our alumni combine their music activities with work in fields such as non-profit management and community-building. Some professions, like medicine and law, don’t require a particular undergraduate major, so some of our students earn a music major just to pursue their love of music.
A double major is common at Wittenberg. Recently, students have combined a music major with a major in English, business, psychology, communication, and biology, as well as other disciplines.
We award several dozen music scholarships each year, available to all students regardless of major, for orchestral and band instruments, voice, piano, organ, and classical guitar.
