    Music Program

    Are you a Musician? Those of us who have gone on to become professional musicians discover quite early in life who we are. It may be a talent for singing, an internal resonance to the sound of flute or cello, or a fascination with the possibilities of electric guitar. You may have played in your high-school band, sung in an a cappella group, or been the star of your local rock band. Whatever your connection to music so far, you know it’s there and realize its importance to your life. But how does this love for music fit into your college education? Can music continue to be part of your future or your career?

    Want to Major or Minor in Music? The Roger Williams University Music Program offers a B.A. degree in Music as well as a Music Minor and a Music Concentration in the University's Core Program. Our faculty are dedicated to helping students explore their options. Music Majors frequently take advantage of RWU’s excellent professional schools, double-majoring or including a minor in business, marketing, public relations, journalism or graphic design. Some combine music with psychology, aiming at graduate school in Music Therapy. Adding minors in film studies, art, computer science, education, and theatre are other possibilities our students have pursued.

    Looking for Other Options? Perhaps Music is not your main reason for attending college, but you are thinking of adding a Music Minor to learn more about composing or music history or to improve your performing abilities. Maybe you simply want to continue to play or sing with a group on campus. Take a few minutes to explore the resources here on our Music Page, and consider making Music part of your RWU experience.
