Welcome to the Music Department

Thank you for your interest in the Music Department! As a Music major at Columbia College Chicago, you will study with a team of faculty who are also award-winning, working artists who are active in Chicago’s music scene. Our students work side-by-side to develop a musical community that provides its members with a liberal arts education as well as the technical and creative skills needed to be successful in the real world. 

We invite you to explore our web site and schedule a department visit so that you can see for yourself how the Music Department is “always getting better.”
