Majoring in music at Rollins College can, and has led to a myriad of career opportunities. While many of our students, upon graduation, attend prominent graduate programs, others pursue a career in education, while yet others embark on musical pursuits such as publishing, arranging, and performing.

In addition to receiving a comprehensive musical education, our students also receive a first-rate liberal arts education. This powerful combination allows our students to also pursue non-musical career options as well. The Department of Music has many alumna who are in business and who are practicing lawyers and physicians. Such success stories speak to the unlimited potential a liberal arts education grants.
