About Applying

Candidates for admission to The Masters Program in Digital Musics typically have:

1. A bachelor's degree in a field relevant to their creative and/or scholarly practice.

2. Demonstrated knowledge and experience in the field of sonic arts. This could be sound art, composition, music theater, instrumental performance, songwriting, improvisation, electronic music, etc.

Master's students are generally awarded a full tuition scholarship, as well as an annual stipend, which typically allows students to devote full-time to their studies. The acceptance of financial support entails a commitment to a variety of activities and responsibilities vis a vis the graduate program and the studio: including studio management and development, research, informal teaching, and full participation in the artistic and intellectual life of the program. Occasionally,  graduate students may serve informally as research or teaching assistants in the Departments of Music, Psychology, Computer Science, or the Thayer School of Engineering.

Application Deadline

Please note that the application deadline is FEBRUARY 1st and that the Graduate Record Examination is no longer required. Since our goal is a small, high-quality program, we typically only admit three new students each year.
