Department of Music

The University of Mississippi


Welcome to the Department of Music at the University of Mississippi. Our mission is to prepare students for professional careers by offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in music education, performance, choral conducting, musicology, ethnomusicology, and theory.

Students entering our programs become part of a vibrant community led by a distinguished and enthusiastic faculty, with 26 full-time and 13 adjunct members dedicated to teaching, research and performance. Thus, our students – more than 170 majors – receive the rigorous individual attention necessary to develop their full potential. As a department within the College of Liberal Arts, we also offer stimulating courses and performance opportunities for non-majors.

Ole Miss Music has ensembles across varied genres that offer students many opportunities to perform.  Other programs connect the music department to our community, and students have a chance to participate in those, as well.  Learn, perform, and do — at Ole Miss Music.
