Graduate Music Programs
Our graduate music programs guide students to academic fulfillment through professional training and musicianship, while offering rigorous academics in a range of subjects.
Each of our music masters degrees nurtures students who wish to prepare for careers as professional performers, teachers, or church musicians. A music masters program provides graduates with greater career opportunities, higher earning prospects, and a breadth of knowledge that goes far deeper than any undergraduate program.
Each degree features a common core curriculum, equaling about 1/3 of the total hours, which encompasses the breadth of scope expected of any graduate degree in music: music theory, music history, and methods of research.
