Graduate Concentrations

At Hunter College we offer a flexible music program – allowing us to meet the diverse needs of our students – at surprisingly affordable prices, Students may study full-time or part-time, which makes our program ideal for the busy NYC professional; indeed, a number of our students are professional musicians and music teachers who are able to complete their M.A. studies at night: all required courses in our department are offered at night.

We offer an M.A. in Music with concentrations in Composition, Ethnomusicology, Music History, Music Theory, and Performance; students with specific needs might also be able to get an M.A. in Music with a “mixed” concentration. We also offer a master’s degree in Music Education (the Teacher Education Program in Music, otherwise known as the Music TEP).
