Music In the Christian University
The focus of CCU's School of Music is to teach you how to impact your
culture for Christ, as well as how to honor Him and to share His love on
campus and around the world, using excellence in music to do so.
Integrated offerings combine classical, jazz, contemporary, and world
music with a progressive and distinctly Christian worldview to develop
students who are leaders – both in the world and in the Church. As a
Music major, you'll receive personal attention by an exceptional,
creative, and caring faculty who are themselves active performers and
clinicians who desire to not only teach but to also mentor students.
Opportunities include national tours for major ensembles, and on- and
off-campus recording studios.
Prospective students who are planning to major or minor in music are required to audition for participation in most ensembles and for consideration for music scholarships.
