Opportunities and Organizations

    International Music Study

    Capital University is the only school in the country that offers a semester of undergraduate study at the Zoltán Kodály Pedagogical Institute of Music in Kecskemét, Hungary.

    Students live at the institute, which is in a restored early 18th-century monastery just outside of Budapest, and take classes in conducting, music literature, solfege, theory, voice, score study, ensemble, applied music and Hungarian culture. All classes are taught in English. Students who successfully complete the program earn 18 semester hours of college credit.

    Capital juniors and seniors are eligible to participate and are selected on the basis of grade point average and an application essay.

    Conservatory students also can study at our sister school in Dresden, Germany, the Hochschule für Musik - Carl Marie von Weber. Areas of study include jazz studies, composition, recording production, electronic music, conducting, and performance piano, voice, or any orchestral and jazz instrument.

    Students desiring to study at other international locations can work with Capital's Office of International Studies and their advisor to arrange study anywhere in the world. Conservatory students have studied abroad in countries such as Japan, Italy, France, and China, among others.

    Undergraduate Research

    We know that getting involved in original research as an undergraduate can put you light-years ahead of the competition when it comes to graduate school. That’s many of our students take advantage of our undergraduate research program at Capital.
