A separate application to the School of Music is also required. Students must submit any required pre-screening audition materials or portfolios 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 must submit a portfolio of original music scores and recordings of composed works.
- 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.
