Dr. Daniel Goble, Director, School of Music, Theatre, and Dance

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at CSU provides a rigorous undergraduate educational experience.

The Music program is focused on the belief that music is both an artistic and intellectual achievement. We offer intense training in specialized music disciplines combined with a balance of core music courses in music history and theory. Most of all, our renowned and versatile faculty are committed to helping students discover their own unique identities through music. We offer B.M. degrees in music therapy, music education, music composition, and music performance as well as a B.A. in music degree. Additionally undergraduates can earn a performance-based music minor.

The Theatre program emphasizes a reciprocal relationship between practice and scholarly study, combining practical training with theory and history, while stressing creative critical thinking. Students are encouraged to engage intellectual and physical approaches to explore diverse cultural forms, historical traditions, and contemporary theatre practice. During their first two years as Theatre majors, all students will take the same core of courses in all sub-disciplines. Following their sophomore review, students will be directed into one of four concentrations offered to Theatre majors at CSU: Directing, Performance, Playwriting and Dramatic Literature, and Theatrical Design and Production.

The Dance program offers a rigorous program in classical and contemporary dance education culminating in a B.A. in Dance. The degree requires a total of 120 credits with the following focus: technical training and foundations, performance, composition, pedagogy, professional preparation, theatrical production and design, and academics. In the Dance major, students explore the many possibilities for movement expression, along with creativity and scholarly examination, in a challenging and supportive environment.

Majors

Minors

The department offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Music (M.M.), offering students the skills and experience necessary to become highly skilled music educators, music therapists, performing artists, and conductors.

The vibrant learning environment fosters and supports creativity and growth while high standards of teaching, scholarship, performance and research are developed. We are pleased to offer small academic classes, applied study with highly qualified faculty, and careful attention to advising. With over 100 performance dates a year, performance opportunities are extensive and the department represents the arts on campus in a highly visible and prestigious environment.

Applicants to graduate programs in music must have a B.M., B.M.E., or equivalent bachelor’s degree. Students interested in graduate work should refer to the Graduate and Professional Bulletin and the School of Music.
