14.2 Program of Study
  1. All candidates for the degree of Master of Music will be required to register for courses which combine course work, performance or work-study internships and which can normally be completed over two years by full-time study. Recital requirements as specified within each specific program option are considered as thesis equivalents. Comprehensive examinations are not administered. The normal residency period in Conducting may, in some instances, be reduced through summer and intersession study or through a reduction of the credit requirements based on prior professional experience. Candidates for the degree are required to complete the core courses in the first year of the program. Principal and secondary applied course credits make up the largest concentration of program requirements and are intended to be taken over two years. Courses in secondary concentrations and electives make up the balance of the program.

  2. All candidates for the M.Mus. degree must complete 36 credit hours which include MU 6001 and MU 6002.
