About the Musical Arts Doctoral Program

The Doctor of Musical Arts degree is a 45-hour program past the master’s program oriented toward professional practice in music emphasizing the creation or performance of musical works and the application and transmission of knowledge about musical works. Fields of specialization are in performance, conducting, composition, and piano pedagogy. A nondissertation program, the degree culminates in four doctoral performance projects which are designed to suit the professional interests and aspirations of the student. A research document is a component of the final doctoral project. Additional information may be obtained from the School of Music.

Language Requirements

The musicology concentration in the doctoral program requires competency in one foreign language. Other concentrations may or may not have this requirement, depending on the dissertation area. Except for the musicology concentration (one foreign language), no foreign language requirement exists for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree, the Master of Music degree, or the Master of Music Education degree. Vocal performance students and choral conducting students must demonstrate singing proficiency in French, German, and Italian.
