Graduate programs are designed for students who have completed an undergraduate curriculum and seek advanced musical training in their applied area of study. The information below provides an overview of two of our graduate programs. Please use the links to your left for more information.
Master of Music
The graduate curriculum leading to the Master of Music degree is a two-year program that focuses on studio and ensemble work supplemented by academic course requirements and electives. The Master of Music is the qualifying degree for entry into most doctoral degree programs.
The graduate curriculum leading to the Graduate Diploma consists of two years of full-time study in instrumental performance, vocal performance, or composition. Audition standards are higher than those for the Master of Music program. The Graduate Diploma is not a degree and typically does not serve as qualification for entry into doctoral degree programs.
