The Immaculata University Music Department is committed to developing in its students an understanding and appreciation of the power and place of music in the world by maintaining music as a primary discipline among the liberal arts; preparing students to use the power of music to teach, to heal, to worship, and to enrich the lives of all people; and promoting the art of music as a spiritual and cultural force in society.
Since the founding of Immaculata College in 1920, music has retained its role as an important academic discipline among the liberal arts as well as a prominent performing art among the creative and fine arts. As part of its identity within the Catholic-Christian university environment, the Music Department holds to the belief that music is fundamentally essential to the wholeness of the human person.
Immaculata University is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), and the music therapy program is approved by the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). Immaculata University is committed to upholding standards of educational, musical and artistic excellence, represented by these outside organizations, providing the foundation for the department’s performance, teaching, and clinical training programs.
