SPOTLIGHT ON PROGRAMS
Our Department of Music has a highly respected international reputation and a professional, collaborative and innovative character. Distinguished faculty, balanced student-to-faculty ratio, and the University’s proximity to New York City make Stony Brook’s program unique. The Department is home to the Emerson String Quartet Institute, which provides rigorous training for string quartets.
We combine the high academic standards of a major research university with the intimacy of a liberal arts college. Students can explore a wide range of themes as they interact closely with faculty who are active writers. An English degree from Stony Brook provides the foundation for success in many fields.
