Artist Diploma

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Artist Diploma is designed for highly talented and motivated young musicians who would like two years of intensive music study. The program focuses on the practical, performance-based aspects of music, including private instruction, participation in ensembles, and concert experience. Two full recitals are required during the two years of study. There is a one-year version of the Artist Diploma, known as the Performer Certificate.

The Artist’s Diploma is a two-year program involving six credits per semester. Due to the intensive amount of weekly practicing and rehearsing involved, students in this program will be considered by the University to be full-time students. The tuition fees will be calculated according to “In-state Graduate” tuition. In generic form, this two year-long program contains sixteen hours of principal private study, and eight hours of chamber music and/or large-ensemble participation.
