We will investigate the creation of intense personal relationships with particular musical works on the hypothesis that these relationships have similarities with intense relationships between individuals. This hypothesis derives from the fact that music is often informally described in terms of human attributes of feeling and motion or gesture. Musical readings will, in general, be drawn from studies written in the years since Cone's The Composer's Voice. We will also read from psychoanalysis on identification and transference, neuroscience on the social nature and behavioral expression of emotion, and philosophy on the human qualities of music. We will also undertake musical analyses that address both the qualities of the works and their effect on listener and performer.

Preliminary examinations in field, both oral and written, are required prior to admission to candidacy. These examinations cover not only the student's field of specialization and the cognate fields, but also the broad general field of music and the relationships between music and other disciplines. These examinations are not necessarily based upon the specific individual courses taken by the student, although course work will be exceedingly helpful in preparing for the exams.

During the first year of doctoral study each student in the program will be given a list of 60 to 75 works from which to choose or be assigned ten works on which to be examined during a general oral preliminary examination. These works should be studied both analytically and historically. The preliminary examinations will be based on these scores, but it is a comprehensive examination and may include other material.

The program culminates in a two-part dissertation consisting of an original composition for large ensemble and a substantial essay on a theoretical topic. Each of these projects will be undertaken after the acceptance of a proposal from the student by the steering committee. The dissertation committee, which may include members of the steering committee, will consist of at least four faculty members, including at least one from the Composition Department, at least one from the Theory Department, and at least one from outside the School of Music.

A comprehensive oral examination on the candidate's dissertation will be conducted by the dissertation committee following the completion of the dissertation.
