What kind of guitar styles are you into? I'm assuming that you like classical as well (based off of your user name
). I hope you do because that is probably what you are going to be studying whether you like it or not
. I really don't think that many college programs are gonna give you a degree in rock guitar
. The one I am in (@ U of Delaware) is mostly geared toward baroque/classical/romantic/post-romantic/20th century music and jazz.
All I can say is to find out who is the guitar instructor(s) at the university you are looking at, and do some research on their performance history, reputation, etc.
