The music program in the School of Arts and Sciences offers a minor in music to students in the Women's College. The curriculum of the music program is designed to meet the needs of those who wish to develop a proficiency in music, to further their understanding and appreciation of the art, and to hone their talents and skills in order to advance opportunities for careers in music and music-related fields. In addition to performing arts, professional opportunities include arts administration; performing arts management; musicology; music therapy; music and education; music technology; recording production; careers in radio, television and film; music libraries; and sacred music.

The music minor encompasses courses in music history, theory, applied music and ensemble. The music minor curriculum complements a number of other programs of study on campus. A student may also follow the program which leads to a liberal arts degree with a concentration in music. For students applying for the Sister Theresine Staab Music Scholarship, an audition, an interview and two letters of recommendation are required.

One medium of the student's musical expression and performance is participation in recitals and concerts, both on and off campus. Qualified students may join the University Concert Choir. The Concert Choir, which specializes in music for women's voices, performs for campus events and concert series in the Baltimore/Washington area. Other opportunities include participation in the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, the Baltimore Opera Company, local choirs and instrumental ensembles. The Music at Notre Dame Concert Series includes performance and master classes by national and international artists. A student may apply four ensemble credits—Concert Choir or Instrumental Ensemble—toward her degree. The general education requirement in fine arts may be fulfilled by taking any of the courses in music. MUS-320 fulfills the general education requirement in fine arts and gender studies. MUS-313 and MUS-314 fulfill the general education requirement in fine arts and cross-cultural studies. A student who has a baccalaureate degree in music from another college may complete the Maryland State Program of Education certification requirement in general/choral music or in instrumental music through the ACT or MAT programs.

Note: Music courses may not be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis.

Preparation for Graduate Study in Music Therapy

Music therapy is a graduate course of study. However, the psychology and music departments assist students who desire to pursue an advanced degree in music therapy. These students complete a major in psychology and a minor in music with the advice and close supervision of a faculty member. Students are expected to contact specific music therapy graduate programs early in their undergraduate work in order to identify specific courses required by the graduate program of their choice. The departments monitor the course recommendations of the American Music Therapy Association. The student's program of study would normally include six credits earned through PSY-307 Abnormal Psychology, and either PSY-233 Human Growth and Development or PSY-203 Child and Adolescent Psychology.
