The Division of Humanities offers courses designed to prepare students for life by providing them the necessary skills and knowledge to continue intellectual development and character formation throughout their lives. We believe that the best preparation for any career includes study in courses that teach critical thinking, the student's own culture, appreciation of diverse cultures, and positive character formation - those courses that, in short, help people to become more capable and to live more satisfying and productive lives. All music majors or minors must participate in one of the music groups associated with their areas of concentration (band, choir, or an approved related ensemble). Students must attend all rehearsals and public performances, unless excused by the director. Applied music study culminates in a public recital of about an hour's duration.
