The UW-Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts music program is designed to promote performance of music, the study of musical structure and form, and knowledge of the history of music, as well as the teaching of music. As one of the principal fine arts, music is the art that most deals with emotion and the one that directly communicates to the listener. Performance opportunities exist that help provide a rich cultural life for the campus, community, and region.
Programs of music study leading to a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree with and without music education certification are offered in the College of Liberal Arts and Education. Students who plan to teach at the elementary, middle school, or secondary level may choose instrumental, choral, general music or combined certification programs (see advisors in the music unit of the Department of Performing and Visual Arts). Other degree emphases are available in instrumental music, vocal music, and music and business.
Music education majors complete the College of LAE general requirements, the School of Education proficiency requirements, the basic core curriculum for music majors, and depth courses in music.
All students intending to become licensed teachers must satisfy the requirements outlined in the teacher licensure section listed under School of Education.
The UW-Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts/ Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
A degree in music may lead to a career in traditional areas such as teaching, performing, composing and arranging, or to a career involving business, computers, and recording technology.
The music unit at UW-Platteville is designed to provide many musical experiences and training. Close contact with faculty and modern facilities such as acoustically designed concert rehearsal and concert halls in the Center for the Arts are important features at UW-Platteville.
The music unit of the UW-Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts serves the student body and region as a cultural resource by providing general courses for all students, and specialized courses leading to those occupations requiring musical expertise. Recognizing that culturally aesthetic enrichment is a vital part of university life, a goal of the music unit is to provide high quality instructional experiences through performances by guest and faculty artists, and student performing organizations.
Students of all academic disciplines are encouraged to partcipate in a music organization.
