The degree consists of a minimum of 30 hours of graduate work, including recitals for the performance student, thesis for the musicology or music theory student, and an original composition for the composition student. The Master of Music degree in string pedagogy or keyboard pedagogy may be attained with a 36-hour program without a thesis. For the performance student, two public performances are required. Both performances must be judged satisfactory by the student’s applied music faculty committee. The conducting student may present either two performances or one with a paper in support of the performance.
