With close proximity to Detroit's cultural center, studentshave access to the resources of such premiere institutions as theDetroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Public Library, the Detroit OperaHouse, and Orchestra Hall. The long historical relationship betweenthe Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Department allows studentsto study and coach with exceptional guest artists and resident artist-faculty who are specialists in all musical styles and media.

    Building on the strengths of its geographic and cultural setting, theDepartment maintains public access to its performances and degreeprograms, offers high-level professional and academic standardsand unique creative and scholarly opportunities appropriate to alarge research university, and cultivates a deep aesthetic under-standing of music in our students and the larger urban arts commu-nity.

    MASTERS DEGREESThe Master of Arts degree is designed for students who wish to pur-sue an academic career in music through a broad liberal arts curricu-lum.
