At the University of Mary Washington we believe that a vibrant musical community should be at the heart of a dynamic liberal arts institution. Major in music and you’ll engage your mind, body and senses – but the benefits don’t stop with you. You’ll share the gift of music whether through composition, education or performance. Go beyond core courses to discover what moves you most, then pursue it with passion. All the while you’ll gain the critical thinking and communications skills to prepare you for graduate study or a career in music right out of college.
Please consult the UMW Undergraduate Catalog for specific and up-to-date major requirements.
Undergraduate outcome data is collected by the UMW Career Center each year. The data is then broken down by major in order to determine how many graduates in each major are employed, attending graduate school, or pursuing a different path within 6 months of graduation.
“Knowledge Rate” describes the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates’ post-graduation career activities.
“Career Outcomes Rate” describes the number of graduates who have landed in any of the employment categories (full-time, part-time, internship) in addition to service, military, and continuing education divided by the total number of students for whom an outcome is known.
