Is the GRE or any other examination required?

Students interested in earning the MM degree are required to take the Departmental Diagnostic Examination. The purpose of this examination is to identify your strengths and weaknesses in music history and music theory. The diagnostic examination is used as a formative assessment to help guide your course of study. It is not used as a criteria for admissions decisions.

The exam for the 2013 cohort will be administered in April 2014. Those who do not pass this examination will be required to take Music History Survey for Graduates (MUS HIST 5800) in May 2014 and Theory Survey for Graduates (MUS THEO 5800) in June 2014.
