The Masters Program in Digital Musics is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to exploring the interrelationships among music, composition and performance, design, technology, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, acoustics, and related disciplines.


Graduate Digital Musics students at Dartmouth College can take a wide range of courses across the College, including but not limited to those in Computer Science, Engineering, Perception and Cognition, Neuroscience, Mathematics, Philosophy, Languages, and Art. 

While in the program, students are encouraged to pursue and develop their individual goals, and their work may be directed towards creative, research, theoretical, or technical topics. We are interested in students who are highly motivated and who want to help redefine the future of music and technology.

Learning outcomes

The graduate program is small, friendly and intense. There are usually six graduate students who work with each other and graduate program faculty on a daily basis. Because students bring a wide variety of background and experience to the program, it is common, for example, for a student with a strong computer science background to assist a composer on a highly technical and innovative project. Conversely, experienced composers often guide and assist students without previous compositional experience. Faculty and students collaborate in a wide variety of ways, working together on projects both formally and informally, and a sense of community is encouraged.

Programme Structure

At the conclusion of the Masters Program in Digital Musics students will be able to:

  • Critically analyze contemporary music, multimedia art, and digital music performance. 
  • Compose new works in digital media using cutting-edge methods, such as computer synthesis.
  • Critically evaluate new research in computer music systems, user interaction design, and interface technologies 
  • Synthesize expertise in two or more concentration areas: contemporary music composition and performance, musical instrument design and fabrication, film and animation, electronics, computing, psychology, neuroscience, health and medicine.
