Areas of Study and Music Degrees

Our music program is recognized as one of the best and most comprehensive in the nation among liberal arts colleges.

Both programs feature one-on-one instruction and studies in a broad range of musical genres. So whether you’re interested in chamber or symphonic, jazz or opera, classical or contemporary, on any instrument, it’s all here at Furman.
