Peabody offers the following Master of Music (MM):

Master of Arts in Audio Sciences

The Master of Arts in Audio Sciences program is intended both for current audio professionals wishing to obtain a post-baccalaureate credential and for individuals with a background in science, technology, and/or music seeking additional training in order to gain employment in the audio industry.

Students entering the program are expected to have a Bachelor's degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Audio Technology, or Music. Undergraduate coursework must include one year of Physics, one year of Calculus, one year of audio fundamentals (the equivalent of Basic Recording I), and basic audio engineering knowledge (the equivalent of Basic Recording II). A background in music which includes courses in Music History, Sightsinging or Solfeggio (moveable or fixed Do), and skills sufficient to enter Music Theory I is also required.



Doctor of Musical Arts

The DMA program at Peabody has equal emphasis on academics and performance. DMA programs are available in various tracks (dissertation, performance, or pedagogy) depending on major. Note that D.M.A. auditions are only held during our February audition period. Successful applicants must demonstrate ability in scholarly writing as well as in performance.



Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships are available to qualified students who have been admitted to graduate programs (MM, AD, GPD, DMA) as full-time candidates. If you want to be considered for an assistantship, you will indicate the areas in which you are experienced and feel qualified to assist on your Decision Desk application.
