The department offers unusually gifted undergraduate students the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree in four years with a minimum of 120 credits. Requirements are the same as those for the 42-credit BA, plus 30 credits at the graduate level. Matriculation is open only to those who are currently undergraduate students at Hunter College. Interested students should consult with the undergraduate adviser to set up a curriculum appropriate to their individual backgrounds. In addition, the graduate adviser must be consulted about the MA requirements; see http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/music/grad-students/admissions/ba-ma/?searchterm=ba/ma for details.
