Admission Requirements

Qualified students enrolled in the Bachelor of Music in Recording Arts (BMRA) program have the option of applying to complete a Master of Arts degree in Audio Sciences during a fifth year of study.

Students in the BM Music for New Media program may apply for this program with an adjusted program of study. Adjustments are detailed here. Interested students should consult with Peabody Advising and department faculty.

Applications and materials must be submitted to Academic Affairs by 1 May during the student's third year of study. Admission to the BMRA/MA does not extend financial aid arrangements beyond a fifth year of study, nor does it guarantee continued major lessons in performance or composition.

Admittance to the BMRA/MA program requires:

  • a cumulative GPA of 3.67
  • recommendation from the Recording Arts faculty.
