Yes, it is possible to pursue a music degree, prepare for frequent performances, study a wide variety of subjects at a highly regarded university—and still see Italy before graduation! At Furman, you'll have an opportunity to do it all.
Our music program is recognized as one of the best and most comprehensive among national liberal arts colleges. We attract ambitious musicians from across the globe who want to study and perform with our talented faculty and dedicated students. With majors for aspiring performers, composers and music teachers, we provide our students with one-on-one instruction, world-class performance facilities and studies in a broad range of musical genres. Our students even have the opportunity to experience Italian music and culture through our study away program in Arezzo.

With nearly 23 percent of Furman undergraduates involved in music, it's not unusual to meet an accounting major playing lead trumpet in a jazz ensemble or a mathematician performing a piano concerto. Perform with us.
