The Department of Music

The Department of Music partners with the School of Music to provide students a basic education in music at Yale. The Department teaches undergraduates in Yale College, providing instruction in music theory, music history, and music appreciation for music majors and nonmajors alike. At the same time, the Department offers graduate programs in music theory and musicology that lead to a Ph.D. degree. 

Graduate courses, all conducted as seminars, are taught by a distinguished faculty. Students at the School of Music can enroll in both undergraduate and graduate courses offered by the Department. Performance opportunities include the Yale Bands, Yale Glee Club, Yale Symphony Orchestra, Yale Baroque Opera Project, and more.
