Music

If music is your passion, we can make it your vocation. And being a virtuoso is not a pre-requisite—your acceptance into the Xavier music program is based upon your musical literacy rather than performance accomplishments. It's from that starting point that you'll discover and follow your passions and interests, whether it's education, performance, theatre or directing.

96%

of Xavier graduates are employed, enrolled in a full-time graduate program or volunteering within 90 days of graduation.
