As an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music, the UNA Department of Music and Theatre has much to offer--outstanding faculty, exceptional performing ensembles and quality degree programs,  including the Bachelor of Music in Performance, Bachelor of Science/Arts degree programs in instrumental music and vocal/choral music (general), and programs of study leading to teacher certification in instrumental music P-12, and choral music P-12 (music education). In addition, the UNA Theatre tradition is renowned throughout the region for its history of excellence in productions and repertoire. UNA is pleased to offer a recently redesigned academic degree program in theatre through the Department of Communications.

Opportunities for performance in music include both large and small ensembles in the University's band, choral, and orchestral ensembles, as well as in piano, guitar, brass, percussion, woodwinds and opera/musical theatre.  Private study is offered across the full range of applied lessons in voice, piano, band and orchestral instruments and guitar. Technical and acting opportunities in theatrical productions are open to all students based on experience and expertise, regardless of academic major.

I encourage you to take some time to look at our web site to see what we have to offer in your particular areas of interest. Should you have questions regarding any aspects of our programs, please don't hesitate to contact the department office at (256) 765-4375.

We hope you will soon be among the many fine students who are preparing for exciting and successful careers through the performing arts at UNA!
