Welcome to Music

Glen Whitehead

The Music Program at UCCS strives to create a culture of “lifelong musicianship” both in the artistic development for music majors in the professional music and arts world as well as with students from across the UCCS campus. Our curriculum is constructed for the 21st century while embodying conservatory style music training, study and scholarship.

The undergraduate music degrees at UCCS are focused and integrative. We offer two Music Major Tracks in the BA in Visual and Performing Arts: Composition & Sound Design and Creative Music Performance and Technology.

We also offer a Bachelor of Innovation in Music, a one-of-a-kind unique degree that integrates music skills, artistic development and audio technology with Business and Engineering – in a partnership with the College of Business and the College of Engineering.

Students in majors from across the campus can receive a Music Minor degree in Performance, Music History or Composition & Sound Design
