The UM Department of Music offers students the opportunity to study with gifted, nationally and internationally recognized faculty while pursuing their undergraduate or graduate music degrees.
Undergraduate students may choose to pursue either a Bachelor of Arts in Music or a Bachelor of Music degree. Students choosing the Bachelor of Music degree may specialize in one of the areas of emphasis: Music Education or Music Performance. Students choosing the Bachelor of Arts in Music complement their major study of music with a minor in another field of study.
Master of Music students can pursue emphases in Choral Conducting, Collaborative Piano, Ethnomusicology, Music Education, Music Performance, Music Theory, or Musicology.
We also offer a Ph.D. in Music with an emphasis in music education, now with an optional concentration in Gender Studies. This doctoral program in music is designed for students who wish to pursue advanced study in preparation for university teaching, research, and other leadership roles in music education.
