Summer Music Studies

The Villanova Summer Music Studies Program for Music Educators has completed 25 years. From 1990 to 2014 over 12,000 music educators have taken our practical graduate music education courses.

In 2015, The University of The Arts, our long time partner and credit grantor, assumed complete production and administration of the Summer Music Program.

The collaboration with The University of The Arts will continue. UArts will handle all aspects of the program including registration, the collection of tuition, and crediting. Villanova will host courses on our campus and provide housing.

Villanova is offering our regular dormitory housing during the program.  Please be sure you are confirmed in your courses before registering for housing.   Visit our housing registration page to register.  Please note: You must register for housing by 4pm on Friday for Sunday evening/Monday morning move-in.   Otherwise, your room will not be available for move-in until Monday after class.
