The music department is proud to offer coursework leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. We have over 250 majors choosing career paths in music education, music industry studies, and music performance.

In the Cal Poly Pomona tradition of "learn by doing," music majors are given a variety of hands-on experiences through internships in the music industry, field experiences in teaching, and master classes with renowned artists. Our general education classes, such as Introduction to Music, Music Appreciation and World Music, as well as our ensembles are open to all university students, regardless of major.

The department presents over sixty events annually, drawn from faculty/staff artist concerts, guest artists, and department ensemble class concerts. Please visit our events page to see the calendar for this year.
