Music Department Overview
Students in the music program enjoy close mentoring and a collaborative atmosphere where students and faculty perform, study, and learn together. Close student/faculty interaction allows students the opportunity to conduct individual research and performance projects, whether at the Library of Congress or the University of Vienna, Austria.
Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.
