Introduction to the Department

The Music Department has been a vital part of the Ohio Wesleyan community for over 150 years. In the Department of Music, talented and experienced faculty will inspire you to develop your unique musicianship without having the distraction of constant competition you would find at conservatories. And you’ll enjoy outstanding facilities and numerous performing opportunities.

We offer a professional Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Arts in music that allows many students to double major in another discipline. Non-majors are welcome and encouraged to participate in OWU’s many vocal or instrumental ensembles.

Department Features

  • Our less-than-5:1 student-to-faculty ratio assures you of all the attention you need to become the musician you want to be.
  • Faculty members are all practicing, professional musicians with wide networks of colleagues. They can help you understand the ins and outs of a professional career and connect you with others who can provide additional opportunities.
  • Just 30 minutes away, you can enjoy the Columbus Symphony, Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra, BalletMet Columbus, Columbus Jazz Orchestra, and many musical attractions.
