Music - BA/MA

4-Year Dual BA/MA Degree

The department offers unusually gifted 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 those for the MA in music (30 credits at the graduate level; see graduate catalog). Students may be admitted to this program only after they have completed at least 60 credits of college work, including at least 29 credits in music (three semesters of music history, four semesters of music theory, and four semesters of musicianship). At least 12 credits (including six in music) must have been taken at Hunter College, and students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 with no grade of less than B in any music course. At that time, they must fulfill all requirements for entry into the MA program except completion of the BA degree. The graduate adviser must be consulted about the MA requirements.
