DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

DOCTOR OF MUSICAL ARTS (DMA)

The purpose of the Doctor of Musical Arts is to train the most promising musicians at the highest musical and intellectual level for prominent careers in their field.  The degree stresses excellence in performance, composition, scholarship, and teaching.  By its nature, the Doctor of Musical Arts provides opportunities for students with proven accomplishment to prepare themselves for the professorship.

For the Doctor of Musical Arts in Performance, Keyboard Performance and Pedagogy, Composition, Jazz Composition, Jazz Performance, Vocal Pedagogy and Performance, and Conducting, the candidate must meet all the general requirements for the Ph.D. degree with respect to residence, research tool requirements, total minimum hours, and written and oral examinations. The major differences between the D.M.A. and the Ph.D. are the creative efforts and performance that replace the dissertation requirements in the D.M.A. degree program. There will also be some variation in the research tool requirements in order that they apply in a more practical way to the needs of students.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

Selection of student based on:

1. Graduate Record Examination (Aptitude portion)

2. Academic record

3. Recommendations

4. Personal audition (Performance Majors); preliminary video tape required for instrumental conducting

5. Samples of musical composition (Composition Majors)

6. Writing Sample (major paper or thesis; Choral Conducting and Vocal Performance Majors)
PLACEMENT EXAMINATIONS

During the three days before registration, all new doctoral students are required to take examinations in music history and literature that will serve as placement tests or prerequisites for entrance to graduate courses. Courses to remedy deficiencies indicated by these examinations must be taken at the earliest opportunity.

DOCTORAL COMMITTEE

The committee is appointed when the student is formally admitted to a doctoral program. It will consist of a minimum of four members, three from the area of concentration and a minimum of one from the areas of Music Theory, Musicology, or Music Education (an approved member from a department outside of the Frost School of Music is possible). A committee may be expanded beyond the minimum number of members based on the needs of the student to a maximum of six. Of these, three (including the committee chairman) shall be regular members of the Graduate Faculty.

Responsibilities of the committee shall include the following:

1. Overseeing all of the students work prior to admission to candidacy, including academic program planning and advising as to recital repertoire.

2. Advising the student regarding relevant research competencies (tools) and ensuring that the student demonstrates these competencies prior to admission to candidacy.

3. Adjudging the quality of the student’s recitals, pedagogy presentations or compositions.

4. Overseeing the doctoral essay or lecture recital, including approval of the topic and proposal, supervision of the writing of the essay or lecture recital, assessment of the quality of the final essay or lecture recital, and the quality of the final essay defense. (In cases where special faculty expertise is needed for a particular essay topic, changes in membership of the doctoral committee may be made. Membership of the essay committee is recommended by the department or program concerned, and approved and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School.)

RESEARCH TOOL REQUIREMENTS

The candidate will be required to show competency in the research tools recommended by the student’s doctoral committee, which is responsible for ensuring that the tools are relevant to the student and that procedures for demonstration of the competencies are appropriate. Research tools must be demonstrated and documented prior to admission to candidacy.

COURSE WORK

Extent of course work is determined by Placement Examinations; however, candidate must complete a minimum of 42 credit hours.

COGNATES

Doctor of Musical Arts students may select an additional formal area of study through the cognate option. The Departments in which the cognate resides administers the cognate. Students must apply to the cognate Department for admission. The admission process may include an audition, interview, portfolio, or testing as determined by the cognate Department. Students must complete all requirements specified for a cognate to be recognized as having completed the cognate. Otherwise, the credits will be considered electives. No credits required in the DMA program can apply to the cognate. Any overlap will require approved course substitutions within either the DMA program or the cognate as determined to be most appropriate by the Dean of Graduate Studies.

Procedures for Entering a Cognate
1. Review the cognates offered on the Graduate Studies web site.
2. Select the cognate you would like to pursue.
3. Contact the Department in which the cognate resides and obtain written approval of your entrance. A simple e-mail by the faculty member in charge of the cognate to the Graduate Studies Office would suffice.
4. Visit the Graduate Studies Office to formally sign-up for the cognate and to obtain a copy of the Academic Program Record (APR) for the cognate.

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION

To be taken in major area (except performance) after completion of approximately 36 credit hours. Examination may be oral or written.

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY

Doctoral students are admitted to candidacy after completing research tool requirements, qualifying and comprehensive examinations. No student may receive the degree in the same semester or summer session in which he or she is admitted to candidacy.

PERFORMANCE AND CREATIVE REQUIREMENTS

D.M.A. students in performance, jazz performance, or keyboard performance and pedagogy may present one recital before the qualifying written examination (provided they have passed their qualifying recital). Before the second or third, depending upon program, recital they must have passed the Qualifying Examinations and removed all reservations for the written examinations in music theory, musicology, and music education, as well as having presented a proposal for the doctoral essay to their committee. Before the final recital the student must be admitted to candidacy (this requirement includes the completion of both the qualifying examination and research tool subjects). All recitals are to be presented during either Fall or Spring semesters.

Performance Majors
Students accepted in the program must present three full-length solo recitals. In addition, instrumentalists are expected to perform a concerto with orchestra or a chamber music recital. Vocalists are expected to execute one or more substantial roles in a large scale work, e.g., opera or oratorio in addition to the solo recitals. Students majoring in accompanying and chamber music will present one solo recital, one chamber music recital, and three accompanying recitals. For Keyboard Performance and Pedagogy, an approved combination of recitals and pedagogy presentations is required.

Jazz Performance Majors
Students must present three full-length recitals

Conducting Majors (Choral)
No less than two approved full recitals shall be presented by each candidate.


Conducting Majors (Instrumental)
Three approved public recitals (or the equivalent) with suitable performing groups must be given during the period of residency and prior to the oral examination.

Composition Majors
1. The candidate will be required to compose a piece of major proportions for large ensemble. In addition, no less than three works for any instrumental or vocal group combination will be required during the period of residency.

2. A formal written analysis of the major work will be required. This will serve as the Doctoral Essay for composition majors.

3. Some form of a recital or public performance of the candidate’s compositions will be required. This requirement could be fulfilled with a recital that would include representative works composed during the student’s residence.

By means of a written doctoral essay or a lecture recital all D.M.A. candidates will be expected to give evidence of their ability to make an original scholarly investigation and present its results in an articulate manner.

Final Oral Examination (administered during Fall and Spring semesters only): defense of the creative or recreative work, and the written essay or lecture recital.

LECTURE RECITAL

The lecture recital is a major presentation whose content must pertain to musical performance, musical analysis, performance practice, comparative editions, interpretation, musical style, or other issues that directly relate to a central theme of music performance.  A written document of the lecture recital must be submitted to the Graduate School following procedures similar to those of the Doctoral Essay.
