Message from the Chair

Dr. Scott Morris

The Department of Music at CSU Dominguez Hills offers programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Music with options in Performance (including all instruments, voice, conducting, and composition), General Music, and Music Education.

 The Music Program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and is distinguished by the wide range of possible experiences it offers the student including performance, composition, conducting, music history, world music, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, music for the theater, jazz, commercial music, and gospel.

 We are currently in the process of updating our program. The B.A. in Performance will be replaced by a Bachelor of Music degree with four areas of emphasis: Instrumental Performance, Vocal Performance, Composition, and Contemporary Music. The B.M. degree is expected to launch during the fall 2023 semester.

 The Department of Music is an All-Steinway school and was the first public university in California to earn this distinction.
