Administrative History

The school of music has its origins as the Department of Music within the Ball State Teachers College. In 1965 as the college transitioned to a university, the Department of Music became the Division of Music within the College of Fine and Applied Arts. By 1972 the academic unit had expanded into the School of Music and remains a part of the College of Fine Arts today. The school offers a variety of intensive programs for graduate and undergraduate degrees. Areas of study include Ensembles and Conducting, Music Theory and Composition, Music Education, Music History and Musicology, Music Media Production and Industry, and Music Peformance.
