Catalyst Curriculum for Graduate Students
We’re training musicians to be catalysts—artists who know how to create change and make things happen. That’s why we’ve turned our graduate education on its head with a different kind of curriculum, customized for you. It pairs musical excellence with a focus on the skills you’ll need to be a musician: the ability to design experiences, produce projects, and engage audiences with exceptional music encounters. With faculty as your facilitators, you’ll take the lead in your own education: exploring, experimenting, and following your passion. You’ll learn how to create your own opportunities for work and, ultimately, you’ll discover who you want to become as a musician.
The Catalyst Curriculum is the principal requirement for students pursuing a Master of Music (individual departments have additional requirements); it is the only requirement for our Graduate Diploma and Graduate Performance Diploma.
