About the Department:

The Department of Music at the University of Arkansas is a vibrant academic community housed in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. In the fall of 2015, the Music Department benefited from the completion of a new, state-of-the-art concert hall. The UA Library’s Special Collections preserve large numbers of music-related materials, including the Ozark Folksong Collection, the Florence Price Papers, and the William Grant Still Manuscripts. The Northwest Arkansas region is a thriving community with unusually rich cultural offerings, including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

About the College:

The Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences is the largest and most academically diverse unit on campus with 3 schools, 16 departments, and 43 academic programs and research centers. The college provides the core curriculum for all University of Arkansas students and is named for J. William Fulbright, former university president, and longtime U.S. senator. The mission of the College comes from the writings of Senator Fulbright: "...the highest function of higher education is the teaching of things in perspective, toward the purposes of enriching the life of the individual, cultivating the free and inquiring mind, and advancing the effort to bring reason, justice, and humanity into the relations of men and nations."

The University of Arkansas is committed to providing an educational and work environment in which thought, creativity, and growth are stimulated, and in which individuals are free to realize their full potential. The Fulbright College promotes these ideals and welcomes applicants who foster an inclusive environment through an open exchange of voices and ideas from populations of diverse backgrounds.
