The Graduate Diploma in Jazz Studies is a two-year advanced program of study in jazz and contemporary music performance.  The curriculum is flexible in order to satisfy the goals of the individual student.  Admission to the program is limited to students who have earned a Bachelor’s Degree, a College-Level Conservatory Diploma, or the foreign equivalent of either, and who possess graduate-level music performance skills and knowledge.  The curriculum focuses on developing advanced musical aptitude through applied private lessons, ensembles, and elective courses.  Specific and individualized programs of study are developed in consultation with the Chair of Graduate Jazz Studies.
