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.
