to the Music Graduate Student Association (MuGSA) website.
MuGSA is run by students for students. All UB music graduate
students are members of MuGSA, a branch of the Graduate
The GSA gives MuGSA an annual budget, which
helps to subsidize students who present at or attend conferences,
concert performances, and master classes. The GSA provides
additional funding opportunities for the purchase of equipment for
the use by graduate students in the department. At our monthly
meetings, we discuss issues that concern us (including degree requirements,
teaching assignments, faculty advisement, etc.), plan events to
foster a better learning environment, and discuss funding requests.
All members are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and vote
on the issues and funding requests.

Mosaic is an online journal published by music students at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. Mosaic presents a forum where innovative research in historical musicology, music theory, and composition converges with time-honored traditions. The journal bridges these disciplines with articles that complement one another, each individual perspective contributing a new tile to the mosaic of music research.
