We are extremely excited that you are considering studying the art and science of music!
The Indiana Wesleyan University Division of Music seeks to develop students in an awareness of accountability to God and the importance of a personal commitment to Christ. It is the faculty's strong desire that this commitment become apparent in the student's attitude toward his or her music. We believe it is vital to recognize that all gifts and talents are given by God, to be cultivated to their highest potential for his glory and service.
The Division of Music recently received reaccreditation with the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). This is a testimony to the strength of our programs and the level of respect our division enjoys among other colleges and universities.
We invite you to explore our five different curriculum tracks. We encourage you to visit us on Facebook and to "like" us! Please feel free to contact us so that we may send additional information about the exciting opportunities available to you at IWU.
