About the Department of Music
The Brandeis Department of Music offers students the opportunity to experience music as both scholarship and a process of creation and performance. We believe in uniting musical excellence with intellectual inquiry. At Brandeis, we help our students to awaken their creative identity within the context of one of the country's most progressive universities.
Founded by preeminent American composer Irving Fine, our department features a distinguished faculty of world-renowned composers, award-winning authors and scholars, instrumentalists, vocalists and conductors. We offer broad-based undergraduate majors and minors that combine the study of history, theory, composition and performance. Our nationally acclaimed graduate programs focus specifically on composition and theory, and musicology.
