The music department consists of an Institut für Musik and an Institut für Musikwissenschaft und Musikpädagogik. There is a Centre for Ostracized Music aiming to appreciate the music of the musicians actively persecuted and murdered during the Nazi regime. Facilities include state-of-the-art sound and media studios. There are co-operative agreements with the North German Philharmonic orchestra, the opera house and the theatre in Rostock, providing students with on-the-job training.
