About

The Master of Music degree at the University of Nebraska at Omaha is divided into three concentrations: Music Education, Music Performance, and Conducting.

Overview

The Music Performance concentration is a thirty-hour program that emphasizes performance and applied music. Courses dealing with history, theory, and pedagogy (as they relate to performance) are included, and opportunities for internships and performances in local professional organizations such as Opera/Omaha and the Omaha Symphony are enjoyed by students at UNO.

The Music Education concentration is available in both a thirty-hour thesis and thirty-six hour non-thesis option. Music Education graduate courses emphasize pedagogy and practical application of music skills and research for teachers at all levels.

Courses in music history, literature, and theory supplement the practical experience to help produce well-rounded graduates with considerable knowledge of techniques and literature.
