Historically rich in tradition, the Music Composition program offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in the School of Music is a resource for music research of all kinds in many different fields of study. At the same time, the School of Music embraces cutting-edge innovation and discovery while providing an array of musical and engagement opportunities within the artistic and educational communities of Urbana and Champaign.
n view of the rapidly changing world for 21st-century musicians, we aspire to produce creative, versatile students who excel in their disciplines while embracing arts advocacy, technological literacy, entrepreneurial thinking, social justice, and engaged citizenship as integral to their work as artists, scholars, and teachers. We expect our faculty to serve as models of creative excellence and leadership in performance, composition, scholarship, teaching, and community and global citizenship to better imbue students with the highest standards of artistry, scholarship, and pedagogy.
Such goals are vital if we are to embrace the implications of the traditional term comprehensive school of music within an institution that aspires to be the pre-eminent public research university with a land-grant mission and global impact. This institutional context marks the School of Music as distinct from freestanding conservatories, from exclusively or chiefly undergraduate colleges with robust music schools, from music departments, and even from music schools in large private universities.
