Enrollment in the Department of Music has remained in the range of 100–125 majors evenly split across Performance, Jazz Studies, Music Education and BA Music–Liberal Arts.
In recent years enrollment has increased to nearly 150 majors. There are about 30 Music minors and a number of students from other disciplines who participate in Performing Ensembles.
The increase in enrollment is both quantitative and qualitative. Entrance Auditions, held in November, January and March, are at an all–time high as Sonoma State is quickly becoming a destination campus for music within the CSU.
