Division of Fine Arts

Within the context of the mission of Southern Wesleyan University, the mission of the music department is to provide a quality music curriculum within a Christian environment. To accomplish this mission, each program within the department will: (1) integrate various aspects of the Christian faith into each course, attempting to instill within the student an awareness of the practical outworking of Biblical principles; (2) equip the student with competency necessary to excel in a variety of musical settings.

God is seeking musicians who are dedicated to serving Him in churches, schools and communities. The effective Christian musician seeks to reach out to others and engage the prevailing culture, wherever God leads them. We prepare our students to meet that challenge through excellent teaching and personal example.

The Division of Fine Arts at Southern Wesleyan University is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) for its excellent faculty and academic programs.
