Resources for Graduate Students

Music Theory, Composition, Music Education, and Musicology students will meet most often with their Major Professor for advising. Performance students meet with the Director of Graduate Studies (Professor John C. Stowe) for course advising. We recommend you meet with your advisor at least once a semester, before you register. Otherwise, you can find all the information you need in the links and documents provided below.
