Welcome to the UNC Music Department
Spread across three buildings in the heart of UNC’s beautiful Chapel Hill campus, the Department of Music offers a superb music education in the context of a top-tier research university. Our faculty consists of more than 70 renowned performers, composers, and scholars whose expertise collectively covers continents, millennia, and the gamut of musical styles and scholarly methodologies. We offer the B.A., B.M., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees, providing comprehensive and individualized instruction to over 200 students pursuing majors and graduate degrees each year. Our courses and more than twenty ensembles engage thousands of students annually; a world-class music library serves the needs of students, scholars, and performers; and an active calendar of concerts, recitals, and lectures enlivens the cultural life of the University and community. Whether you are a prospective student, an alumnus, or a member of the public, please visit us anytime—we look forward to greeting you!
