Department of Music
The graduate programs in Music (M.M. Music, Certificate in Music Performance) prepare students with advanced technical and artistic skills for a career in a music-related profession, to conduct creative work, inquiry, and investigation, and to act independently as a performer, scholar, and/or practitioner by achieving in-depth knowledge and competency in a specific concentration area. This will be accomplished through a program of study with concentration areas in composition, conducting, music education, music technology, and/or performance as appropriate to the goals and aspirations of the student.
The MM program supports the college and university missions as it aims to create a culture of student engagement that bridges theory with practice, extends learning beyond the classroom, and promotes academic excellence and student success. This degree is designed for individuals with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music who would like to hone their musical skills to a higher level, to pursue a post-baccalaureate degree for professional advancement, or to prepare for admission to a Doctoral program in music.
The Certificate in Music Performance program offers a one-year, intensive post-baccalaureate experience in performance. It is intended for students who want more training in applied music after the bachelor’s degree, but who do not desire an advanced degree.
Note: Graduate programs in the Department of Music are available only on the Statesboro Campus.
