Graduate Program in Musicology and Composition
Graduate students in the Department of Music apply to either composition or musicology. Though the department does not offer separate programs in music theory or ethnomusicology, students with strong interests in either of these areas are encouraged to apply to the musicology program. Students admitted under this circumstance will work with the faculty to design an appropriate course of study, tailored to their individual needs and interests, which may include specialized general examinations and/or courses at nearby institutions. While there are no degree programs in performance or music education, the department does maintain a non-degree program in musical performance instruction available to both graduate and undergraduate students.
Prospective applicants in musicology should submit samples of previous work. Prospective applicants in composition should submit approximately three representative compositions, in replaceable copies, with corresponding recordings of performances if possible.
Please see Guidelines for Prospective Students for more information on application requirements and procedures.
