WAVERLY, Iowa — Wartburg College will offer graduate degrees for the first time in its history next year.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports that the college has developed two master’s degree programs. One is a traditional master of arts in music. The other is a master of arts in music therapy.

Music department chairman Brian Pfaltzgraff says Wartburg remains the only private school in Iowa offering an undergraduate music program, and “now we have become the full package.”

The graduate program was approved by the National Association of Schools of Music and the American Music Therapy Association and also received accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission for graduate programs.

The graduate programs will be offered starting in 2018.
