Graduate

Our master’s degrees offer great opportunities to develop performance, scholarship, and teaching skills. 

  • The Master of Arts (MA) degree is offered with focus on Choral Conducting and Vocal Performance (among other areas). To help support study in these areas, most students apply for a Graduate Teaching and Research Assistantship in which students gain valuable, hands-on experience in their area
  • The Master of Arts in Education (MAE) is the  degree in which Truman certifies students to teach. This degree coordinates with our BA in Music, Pre-Certification degree
