Master of Music (MM)

The Master of Music degree includes core courses in music as well as courses in the area of specialization. A secondary concentration may be added and will require additional coursework.

Secondary concentrations are listed below. Interested students will need to declare their desire to add a second concentration, apply for the program and complete the necessary paperwork in order to officially add a second concentration. Admission to a second concentration will be determined by the faculty in that area. No more than one concentration beyond the major specialization may be attempted. One member of the supervisory committee must represent the secondary concentration. Unless indicated otherwise, courses required for the second concentration may not also fulfill specific degree requirements in the area of primary specialization. However, courses in the second concentration may, at the discretion of the student’s supervisory committee, be used to fulfill approved elective credit in the primary degree area.
