A separate application to the School of Music is also required. Students must submit any required pre-screening audition materials and must complete in-person auditions to be accepted. These deadlines and audition dates can be found on the School of Music Graduate Application and Audition page.
In addition to the general requirements of the College of the Arts, the School of Music has the following requirements:
- Applicants must have an undergraduate degree or concentration in music, or the equivalent.
- Applicants are required to take placement examinations in music history and music theory before registering for coursework. Those applicants whose examination scores reveal deficiencies will be required to take appropriate additional coursework, which will not be applied to the graduate degree.
Additional Admissions Requirements
Applicants must submit the following materials: an audio or video recording of a recent choral concert, at least three printed programs of concerts or church services that have been performed within the last four years and a repertory list of choral music conducted, sung or performed in applied areas.
