New dual BM/MM program in Music Technology

We are happy to announce the opening of a new dual BM/MM program in Music Technology. The program allows qualified majors to start pursuing the Master’s degree while still fulfilling the requirements for their Bachelor’s degree. By reducing the required points for the MM degree from 45 to a minimum 32 points, students will be able to complete both degrees in a total of five years. More details are available at:
The dual degree program will only be available to a limited number of qualified students already in the B.M. program in Music Technology. Students may apply to the program during their sophomore or junior years. More details on the application process are available at:

For Fall 2010 admission, the deadline for applications is June 30. Interested students should send their application materials to the music tech office in the 7th floor of 35 W 4th street. Applications should be in a closed envelope clearly marked with the words dual BM/MM program.
