Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a music major or minor?

Villanova does not have a music major or minor.  General topics in the arts are taught across the University (mostly in Honors, A&S, and in the Theatre Department).  Music Activities Groups are open for all students.  (Instrumental Groups and Large Vocal Ensembles don't even require an audition!)
