The MM in Composition at Florida International University is designed to
assist students with the development of their own individual voices as
composers while helping them to continue to develop their craft.
Numerous performance opportunities of students' works by excellent
performers and ensembles as well as hands on experience in the use of
new technologies including MIDI, computer music, and interactive and
notational software are an integral part of the curriculum. Many of our
graduates have continued studies at other prestigious schools and have
been the recipients of ASCAP and BMI Student Composition awards. The
two year MM in composition prepares composers for either continued
graduate studies or as skillful composers continuing in a variety of
other venues.

Admission is by application to the University and to the School of
Music. Applicants for the M.M. in Composition must submit a portfolio
of their creative work. A personal interview is recommended for those
seeking a Graduate Assistantship in Music Composition.
