The Ohio State University School of Music

As one of the largest universities in the world, Ohio State offers a wealth of resources on its beautiful Columbus campus. In the midst of this educational community, the School of Music is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, the academic heart of Ohio State.

Students benefit from the endless possibilities provided by a world-class university located in a thriving, art-focused city, as well as the atmosphere of the school's close-knit community.

We recognize the relationship that binds music to other academic and artistic disciplines and provides students with a comprehensive education, preparing them for careers in composition, performance, scholarship and teaching. Our faculty of recognized performing artists, composers, scholars and master teachers are specialists in their fields and serve a student body of approximately 300 undergraduate and 100 graduate music majors, as well as hundreds of non-music majors who are pursuing music minors, taking classes or participating in one of the many performance ensembles.

Faculty, students and guest artists present over 250 annual events, concerts and outreach programs, enriching the arts in the community. In keeping with the university's broader mission, the school is committed to nurturing the best of Ohio's students, while maintaining excellence and diversity by recruiting nationally and internationally.

The Ohio State University is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
