The Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions offers the finest professional training within a preeminent and internationally acclaimed university. The graduate programs are united by a spirit of openness and innovation that encourages students to pursue their specializations in the arts in the context of the larger world of ideas. With an outstanding faculty of performers and educators supported by superb research and studio facilities, we offer an unparalleled environment for artistic challenge and growth. Our approach to graduate study arises out of the recognition that in addition to substantial training in individual specializations, todayÆs performer, composer, educator, therapist, technical specialist, or executive needs multiple skills and broad experiences to pursue a successful and fulfilling career. The schoolÆs location in New York City is a great advantage. Immersed in the excitement and opportunities of the worldÆs musical and artistic capital, students enjoy the extraordinary cultural institutions and events that no other city provides. Our location enables us to draw on the greatest artists in the world and allows our students to build networks and take advantage of abundant professional opportunities. Frequently reviewed by the New York media, over 200 performancesùfrom solo recitals to ensemble concerts and full opera and music theatre productionsùare presented by our department each year. Master classes are presented several times each week throughout the academic year. Graduate offerings include programs leading to the Master of Arts degree, the sixth-year Certificate of Advanced Study, and the Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees. In addition, the Master of Music degree is offered in music technology. The graduate program in music therapy is accredited by the American Association of Music Therapy (AAMT) and leads to New York State Licensure as a creative arts therapist.
