The School of Music
The School of Music is a proud member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and has twenty full-time faculty, twenty-two part-time faculty, two full time office staff and eight graduate teaching assistants. The School of Music is housed in the newly modernized and expanded surroundings of the Creative Arts Center. Facilities include Schuster Hall, the more intimate Recital Hall, and numerous purpose built teaching studios, offices, and practice rooms. The music library is located next door to the Creative Arts Center in the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library.
Wright State University, one of Ohio's thirteen state-assisted universities, became accredited and independent in 1967. The university offers forty master's programs, two research doctoral programs, and two professional doctoral programs. Although Wright State has a rural-suburban setting, downtown Dayton is only twenty minutes away by car or campus bus. Ballets, concerts, lectures, and other cultural activities are available throughout the year. In addition, the university and the School of Music sponsor performances by students, faculty, and visiting artists. Art exhibits and theatre productions are also offered regularly in the modern Creative Arts Center.
