Artist's Diploma Certificate Program - Graduate
The Artist's Diploma is a two-year program designed for highly talented and motivated young musicians seeking intensive music study. The program focuses on the practical, performance-based aspects of music, including private instruction, participation in ensembles, and concert experience. Two full recitals are required during the two years of study. There is a shorter one-year program, the Performer's Certificate.
Completion of the programs requires six credits per semester. Due to the intensive amount of weekly practicing and rehearsing involved, students in this program will be considered by the University to be full-time students. The tuition fees will be calculated according to “In-state Graduate” tuition. In generic form, this program contains sixteen credits of principal private study, and eight credits of chamber music and/or large-ensemble participation.
Students must have a baccalaureate degree or equivalent from an accredited institution. Credits from previous study may not be substituted or transferred into the Artist’s Diploma program. The one exception applies to students who have just competed Montclair State's Performer’s Certificate program; they may roll over the twelve credits earned in that certificate towards this more intensive 24-credit program.
