Music Performance Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The music performance certificate program allows graduate students who want to pursue careers in performance to engage in intensive study and performance. It is designed to prepare students for auditions for orchestra, opera, and music theater positions where a master’s degree is not needed. The certificate program consists of 30 credit hours, with 20 credit hours of performance courses and 10 credit hours of electives from within the existing graduate music degree courses in consultation with the certificate program advisor. The certificate program should normally be completed in one year and not more than two years.

Application procedures, admission criteria, and performance standards are the same as those for the Master of Music degree. All application materials must be received by June 1 for fall quarter, November 1 for winter quarter, and February 1 for spring quarter. Applicants may be in an advanced degree program elsewhere in the University or apply as a non-degree student. Students may not pursue the performance certificate in conjunction with the Master of Music degree.
