3-Summer Master of Music in Music Technology

3-Summer Master of Music in Music Technology

Our new 3-summer sequence allows you to complete our 45-credit master of music degree in Music Technology during the summer terms.

This sequence is perfect for teachers, educators, and professionals who want to pursue an advanced degree in music technology and can devote their summers to immersive experiences and intensive study.

Same High Quality Curriculum, Different Format
The curriculum and degree requirements are identical for the three-summer option and for the regular academic year program. We ensure that our summer elective offerings are rich and varied so that you and all our music technology students have a good selection of courses and experiences to choose from each summer. You also have the option to take courses during the academic year, if you like.

Outstanding Faculty
The summer offers a special opportunity to work intensively with faculty in and outside the classroom.  Summer faculty include:

Scholarships and Financial Aid
You may be eligible for competitive scholarships as well as federal financial aid. Please note that loan deferment ends after 6 months of non-enrollment, and if you choose the three-summer option you may need to make loan payments between terms. Learn more about loan repayment, deferment, and forbearance.
