About

In addition to studying music, our flexible curriculum allows you to easily pursue a double major, study abroad, collaborate with internationally acclaimed artists, complete a major research project, or teach in the Butler Community Arts School - all with the support and inspiration of Butler’s world-renowned faculty.

Overview

The degree requires the completion of 30 credit hours, including a thesis (MT 709), which consists of a score (and recorded performance if at all possible) of an original work in a larger form with an accompanying paper about the composition. An oral thesis defense is required. After the successful defense has been completed, a final copy of the thesis must be approved by the thesis committee and by the Director of Graduate Studies, and submitted according to the guidelines found on the University library’s website. Approval and submission must be completed before the degree can be conferred.
