Graduate Specializations

Graduate Specializations are indicated after the major on official records and transcripts once the student graduates with their primary degree. The University of Oregon offers a number of graduate specializations in specific academic and professional subjects.

  • Students pursuing a graduate specialization must be admitted to a graduate degree program at the university.
  • In order to pursue a specialization, a student must be admitted to a University of Oregon master’s or doctoral program.

Students who choose to pursue a graduate specialization should declare their intention with the School of Music and Dance Graduate Office by fall term of the second year of study using the SOMD Specialization Declaration form.
