About

The Master of Music (MM) degree in music theory is designed to prepare students for a teaching or research career in music theory. Applicants to the program usually have an undergraduate degree in music theory or its equivalent.

Overview

The programme includes instruction in modern analysis, Schenkerian analysis, history of music theory, and seminars in music theory and music history. An important feature of the curriculum is the flexibility in elective course work appropriate to the interests and needs of the student.

Throughout the program, students participate in the department's music theory colloquium. The program includes proficiency examinations in music analysis, ear training, tonal counterpoint, keyboard harmony, score reading, and German reading translation. During the second year, a thesis in music theory is written under the supervision of a music theory faculty member. A comprehensive examination in music theory is taken at the end of the program.
