I can't speak to that specific program, but my limited experience with some professors there has not been favorable. U of O is heavily biased towards the sports programs, but by most accounts it's a decent school, academically speaking.
not sure about your background, but you may want to check into CCRMA @ Stanford's music school or UCSD has an interdisciplinary music degree that's probably similar to what you're looking for.
don't know anything about the music program there. my advice would be to go visit.
i do know they have a good theater/dance/technical lighting design type programs there.
+1 on the UCSD recommendation. there's also a place in montreal that skiptracer/nagrom attends.
Thanks for the input, erebody. We will probably go visit in the next few months. My wife is finishing her first year in February as a nurse at Glendale Adventist in Socal, after which she will be able to get a job up there. Housing costs are looking so refreshing after struggling for so long to live and work in LA, so that's a huge plus for Oregon in general......
