The Department of Music offers three graduate degree programs, both accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. These include the Master of Music in Music Education and the Master of Music in Performance.
The Master of Music in Music Education degree is a professionally oriented program. It is designed to serve music educators from primary to postsecondary levels. Though all courses are pertinent to terminal degree programs, they are equally valuable for students who plan to study at the doctoral level. A variety of program options allows students to design programs that suit their professional goals and take into account their backgrounds and experience.
The Department of Music offers three major options in program planning that lead to the Master of Music in Music Education degree. The options include the Thesis Option, the Project Option, and the Recital Option. Each contains requirements in music education, music history and literature, and music theory, as well as opportunities for performance. For the Thesis Option, the student prepares a thesis under the supervision of the thesis director; the Project Option requires one project under the supervision of a project director; and for the Recital Option, the student presents a full-length public recital and a research paper.
