Theory & Composition

The Department of Music

Theory & Composition at UNM is a vibrant area within the music department boasting a large, diverse faculty that works well together and a remarkable team of unique and talented students

Students work impressively as a community meeting weekly to develop collaborative projects, performances and concerts and to discuss relevant issues and share scholarly work. With a broad array of high-level course offerings in theory, composition and music technology, the BM and MM degrees in Theory-Composition are flexibly constructed to allow students to find the curriculum that’s best suited to their short-term and long-term goals and needs.

From the creation of fully theatrical collaborative multi-media shows, to professional conference invitations and publications, to acceptance letters from top-tier doctoral programs, we are extremely proud of what our students accomplish.
