Graduate Study


The advanced degree programs offered in the Herb Alpert School of Music offer graduate students unique research opportunities when combined with special resources, such as the Young Research Library, the special collections of the Music Library, and the University’s performance halls.

Fellowships, grants, and assistantships are available through the departments and the dean of the Graduate Division.


In addition to requiring that applicants hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution or an equivalent degree of professional title from an international institution, each department in the school has limitations and additional requirements. In general, samples of creative work (auditions, portfolios, computer programs, etc.) are required. Detailed information is available on individual department websites and in Program Requirements for UCLA Graduate Degrees.

For information on the proficiency in English requirements for international graduate students, see Graduate Admission in the Graduate Study chapter of this catalog.

The Graduate Council of the UCLA Academic Senate voted to suspend admissions to the Ethnomusicology graduate programs effective fall quarter 2017.

Degree Requirements

Requirements to fulfill each degree objective vary according to the degree and the department. For complete degree requirements, see Program Requirements for UCLA Graduate Degrees.
