About the Master of Music in Music Program


The M.M. in Music degree offers concentrations in composition, conducting, music theory, musicology (all 30 hours), pedagogy (36 hours), and performance (32 hours). The degree consists of a minimum of 30 hours of graduate work, including recitals for the performance concentration, thesis for the musicology and music theory concentrations, and an original composition for the composition concentration. Students in the musicology concentration must demonstrate reading proficiency in one foreign language prior to completion of the program. The Master of Music degree in pedagogy (string or keyboard) may be attained with a 36-hour program without a thesis. The Master of Music degree in performance (jazz, keyboard, string, voice, or winds/percussion) may be attained with a 32-hour program that requires two public performances. Both performances must be judged satisfactory by the student’s applied music faculty committee. Students in the conducting concentration (choral, orchestral, or wind) may present either two performances or one with a paper in support of the performance.
