The Master of Music Program is designed to provide opportunity for in-depth study in an area of specialization, to increase professional competence in teaching and performance, and to prepare for continued self-directed study or advanced graduate study.
The following degree programs are available:
- Music Education
In addition, the following secondary areas of study (cognates) are available:
- Jazz Pedagogy
- Music Theory

By combining a primary area of study (degree program) with a secondary area of study (cognate) a CWU Music Graduate Student can create a customized program that addresses interests, strengths, weaknesses and preparation for further advanced graduate study.
