What are the dissertation and recital requirements for DMA degrees?
In the DMA degree there is a distinct body of work called “Doctoral Performance and Research.” For each student there is a Doctoral Performance and Research Committee that advises and evaluates this body of work. Doctoral Performance and Research includes degree recitals, lecture recitals and a Doctoral Research project. The number and nature of degree recitals and lecture recitals varies with each program, but most include four to six performances, including at least one lecture recital. The Doctoral Research Project may take a variety of formats, and the final product is not necessarily an extensive written document. The Project, however, must have prior approval by the Doctoral Performance and Research Committee.
