"Webster University made me excited to go back to school for my master's degree. The professors, my advisor, and the staff were very helpful and flexible; they worked with my schedule as a working graduate student. They allowed me to basically get a "Beth degree," within my requirements. This knowledge was immediately applicable to my current job. When I look back now, I am so pleased that I got to study with professors that are such talented, intelligent, professional and accomplished musicians. Webster was exactly what I needed and wanted."
~Beth Enloe Fritz, MA, '05

The Master of Music (MM) program prepares graduates for careers in doctoral study, private studio teaching, private or public school music teaching, and public performance as soloists, ensemble members, conductors, and composers.

To determine an emphasis for training, each student consults with the major professor, the Director of Graduate Studies in Music, and the Committee for Graduate Studies in Music. Music history and music theory courses form basis of every degree.

The MA program qualifies graduates to teach applied music in the studio or classroom, perform with or conduct ensembles, compose or arrange music, pursue doctoral studies in musicology, theory, or another field, or establish an expertise in any one or several additional areas.

We offer the MA in Music without an official area of specialization, although students may emphasize any one or more of several fields within music through elective courses that meet individual needs and career goals. The student determines the area of emphasis through consultation with the Committee for Graduate Studies in Music and the Director of Graduate Studies in Music.

In contrast to the performance-related Master of Music, the MA in Music degree program emphasizes academic studies in music and related fields. Performance and creative musical endeavors, however, remain central to the course of study for many students.
