The Music History and Literature program at Wheaton College Illinois provides comprehensive music training aimed towards further study in musicology or related fields and encourages the formation of a diverse approach to music scholarship. 


When you study music, you build a repertoire of skills that apply well beyond the field of music. You’ll instill personal discipline, refine problem-solving skills and abstract thinking and improve memory and intellectual capacity. You’ll also explore your artistic potential while building collaboration and leadership skills with other musicians. With these skills, you’ll be well-prepared to go on to a variety of career, graduate school and ministry options.
