Yale School of Music announces newly revised Master of Musical Arts, Artist Diploma

The Yale School of Music is pleased to announce important revisions to two of its degree programs. These revisions allow students to further develop their musicianship and artistry in a profound and unique way, leveraging both the teaching of the distinguished artist-faculty of the School of Music and the unparalleled resources of Yale University.

Last year, the School of Music launched its revised Doctor of Musical Arts degree, its highest academic credential. The launch of these two performance-focused programs complements that of the new DMA. The new Master of Musical Arts degree and Artist Diploma programs are now accepting applications for the 2015–2016 academic year.

“The new programs will nurture young artists of the highest caliber who reflect Yale’s values of cultural leadership and service. These programs will continue, sustain and enhance the rich legacy of musical excellence that has characterized Yale for over three centuries,” said Robert Blocker, Dean of the Yale School of Music.

The meeting will be hosted by Wei-Yi Yang and Michael Friedmann. Lily Sutton, the director of admissions, will be there as well to answer questions about the application.

Please email Lily Sutton to RSVP for the meeting on October 18.
