Doctoral Studies Overview

Welcome to the Music and Performing Arts Professions website for current doctoral students.

Our current doctoral offerings comprise four programs in Educational Theatre, Music Performance and Composition, Music Education/Therapy, and Music Technology. The MPAP doctoral community is unique and vibrant, and the environment we offer supports rich interdisciplinary work. Dedicated faculty advisers and mentors are committed to helping you do your best.
 
This website outlines the requirements for each program and clarifies benchmarks that will help you navigate your doctoral study. You are encouraged to meet regularly with your academic advisers and mentors, to go over program expectations, and to discuss your Academic Plan and progress towards your degree. A comprehensive outline of all MPAP doctoral policies and procedures is outlined in our Doctoral Handbook.
 
I am available to address your questions and concerns.
