Note: The main difference between the curriculua for the MM and the MA programs in composition is that the cognate for the MM degree is in a field within music (e.g., performance, musicology, or music theory), while the cognate for the MA degree is in a field outside of music. While the application process differs for these degrees, the admission criteria are identical, and it is possible to change from one to the other after admission.
