Information for Prospective Students
Prospective students are welcome to visit the Department of Music. It's best to call (603.646.3531) or email in advance to ensure that a staff or faculty member will be able to meet with you.
The music department is not a music school; because Dartmouth College is a liberal arts institution, the department does not hold auditions nor are applications made directly to the department. If a matriculating student wishes to pursue a major or minor in music, concentration can be on any of the following: composition, theory, history, ethnomusicology, or performance.
Participation in the Hopkins Center performing ensembles or taking lessons in the music department's Individual Instruction Program (IIP) or Music 50 Performance Laboratories is not limited to Music majors or minors.
