Music Major

In the 21st century, music defies boundaries. Composers and performers now consistently stretch their art beyond the strictures of traditional instruments and sounds, and sometimes even beyond the realm of sound itself into such areas as movement and interactive media. Meanwhile, music has become a topic of cutting-edge scholarly work in such diverse disciplines as computer science, history, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and sociocultural anthropology.

The Music Program at NYU Abu Dhabi is committed to educating a new generation of musicians capable of making and thinking about music from transnational and interdisciplinary perspectives, while also enriching the education and experience of all NYUAD students and fostering a vibrant and diverse musical community within the campus.
