The Master of Music is designed to develop professional and scholarly competence in a wide range of artistic and cultural areas. Five concentration areas are available: performance, conducting, performance pedagogy, music theory and composition, and music education. Curricula are very flexible and may be customized according to each student's interests such as jazz performance and composition, chamber music, specialization in instrument families, media, or accompanying. The program is composed of a minimum of 30 credit hours and requires participation in one major ensemble each semester.
