PHD – Musicology


The PhD with an emphasis in historical musicology requires a minimum of 60 units beyond the bachelor’s degree and consists of course work in music history; electives in history, language, literature or arts other than music; and general electives. After completing an adaptable collection of courses suited to the student’s research interests, the program culminates with a dissertation.
