Master of Music Degree Requirements

The graduate advisor works closely with each student in planning and implementing a degree program that will accommodate the student's professional needs and interests. Using the results of the entrance examinations and a review of the first six to 10 semester hours of course work, the graduate advisor is able to provide information to the student regarding probable success in their program, and any time limitations that may apply. The program of study in each of the five Master of Music degree paths are as follows:

Composition (minimum of 30 hours)

Conducting (minimum of 31 hours)

Music education (minimum of 30 hours)

Music therapy (minimum of 30 hours)
