With Goshen College’s unique music for social change minor or concentration (it is the first undergraduate program of its kind), you’ll hone your musical gifts in our world-class Music Center and discover the tools to bring social change and empower individuals and communities.
Our graduates have been remarkably skillful at merging their gifts with their passion to make the world a better place, from elementary music classrooms in Goshen to urban public schools in Chicago to directing a youth orchestra in Bolivia. Designed to intersect with music for social change initiatives happening in Elkhart County, this new major concentration and minor will enable students to practice what they learn and gain valuable experience via a rigorous internship component.
