PhD Degree Program


The PhD degree is structured to allow maximum flexibility in designing a program around each student’s background and needs. Although the distribution of hours is firm, program requirements are to be regarded as general rather than fixed. The student’s preparation, experience, and stated goals are carefully evaluated before an individually selected course of study is prescribed.

Program objectives are: (1) competency in selected area of concentration and related research areas; (2) development of teaching skills; and (3) ability to successfully publish research in a selected music discipline.
