Master of Arts in Music
An Opportunity for Creative Flexibility
The master of arts in music is a flexible curriculum that allows students the opportunity to create personalized programs of study while deepening musical skills and understanding commensurate with their academic and career goals. Students plan a principal focus of study in consultation with an advisor, comprised of a set of courses with a coherent structure designed around a central emphasis. The final project may be chosen to reflect individual gifts and interests: a traditional thesis or a performance or a lecture-recital.
Candidates contemplating the master of arts in music should be competent, well-prepared musicians whose graduate interests are broader than would be served by a more narrowly focused master of music program of study.
