MASTER OF MUSIC
The University of Maine School of Performing Arts Division of Music offers graduate studies leading to the Master of Music degree in Music Education with an optional conducting emphasis and Performance. Individualized curricula are designed to meeting students’ interests and needs while offering a balanced program of academic and professional courses.
Course offerings are scheduled so that students who are otherwise employed may meet all degree requirements for any major by enrolling in any four consecutive terms. This plan is recommended for students pursuing majors in Performance and Conducting where course continuity is desirable. For students who pursue full-time graduate studies during the academic year and summers, it is possible to complete all degree requirements in a shorter time span. Core courses offered during fall and spring semesters are scheduled in afternoon time blocks to allow area music teachers to enroll. Students in the Music Education major can complete all degree requirements within four consecutive summers or less.
