The Department of Music at the University of California, Davis,
offers a curriculum based on a synthesis of music scholarship,
performance, and composition. Undergraduate majors can
pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, focusing their studies
in either performance, composition and theory, or history.
Candidates for a Doctor of Philosophy degree can specialize in
the fields of composition and theory,
musicology, or ethnomusicology. The department
also offers a master’s emphasis in conducting. A
distinguished faculty serve
undergraduate and graduate students. Many of the
department’s graduates successfully continue their education in
the best graduate schools and move into a variety of related
careers. Department resources include a diverse collection of
instruments and facilities, such as an extensive music library
and an electronic music studio.
