The Music Research (MA) is designed to provide a broad foundation in advanced concepts and skills in musicology and music theory. The curriculum is flexible, allowing students to design a program that balances training in musicology and music theory (both broadly defined) to align with their interests and professional goals. The program aims to prepare students for doctoral studies in related disciplines and for a variety of allied professions. As a capstone, students will complete an academic thesis or develop a practicum that focuses on the application of music research. Renewable scholarships and teaching assistantships are available for qualified applicants.
