Apply to be a part of the School of
Music graduate program today!

The School of Music offers multiple graduate degree programs at both the master's and doctoral level and a graduate minor. Students wishing to pursue a master's degree have the option of seeking a master of arts (MA) or a master of music (MM) and selecting an emphasis of interest.

Students interested in seeking a doctoral degree may pursue a doctor of musical arts (DMA) or doctor of philosophy (PhD) in music at the University of Minnesota.

Graduate Minor

Students pursuing a graduate degree outside of music, but with an interest in the theory and history of music, may apply to add a graduate minor to their programs. To apply for the grad minor, students must obtain a signature of approval from their major advisor and the School of Music Director of Graduate Studies.

CLA’s Graduate Programs Office offers graduate students access to funding resources, health and supportive services, diversity initiatives, and other valuable information.
