Erskine offers the opportunity to further customize your studies. With faculty assistance, students can propose alternative concentrations, which may be pursued if approved by the music faculty and the provost.
Many Erskine students studying in other fields enjoy the music minor, which offers either a concentration in a particular performance skill or a general music track.
All students, whether they are music majors, minors, or non-majors, are invited to take applied music or audition for ensembles. The music faculty at Erskine College is committed to equipping students with music skills to be used for a career or a lifetime of enjoyment.
