Doctor of Musical Arts
The objective of the TCU Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree in performance, piano pedagogy, composition or conducting is to develop the musician-scholar—one who displays a high level of mastery in a professional medium and is equipped with scholarly research skills. The program leading to the degree is designed to prepare musician-scholars for careers as creative artists and teachers at institutions of higher learning. Enrollment in the doctoral program is carefully monitored toward the goal of remaining highly selective and relatively small. Prospective DMA students must demonstrate the potential for both artistry and scholarship on the highest levels.
