About MPA

The Music and Performing Arts Department (MPA) is an integral part of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Science. The current program provides students foundations in theory, history and performance leading to concentrations in Recording Technology and Contemporary Music. Students collaborate within the college in a wide variety of productions and participate in Service Learning programs within their community.

Students seeking a Bachelors of Arts degree in music can look forward to a variety of learning experiences with particular emphasis on the fact that all forms of art are interdisciplinary collaborations among artists. At the core of our collaborations are applied music and new technologies working together to enhance individual creativity.

The MPA Department brings together musicians, composers, singers, visual artists, actors, choreographers and others together to work, learn, create, and perform using new tools and technologies. MPA is on the cutting edge in training students to take their place as musicians, singers recording engineers and technicians, in areas of performance and production. The goal of the MPA Department is to prepare students for professional careers in a rapidly changing technological industry.
