Music PhD in Ethnomusicology

Overview

Ethnomusicology

The graduate program in ethnomusicology offers rigorous training in the intellectual history of the field, theory, fieldwork, ethnography, transcription/analysis, and area studies. Our ethnomusicology students not only benefit from collaboration with the faculty and students in musicology and composition, but they build an important interdisciplinary underpinning to their studies with required courses in performance studies, anthropology, critical theory, and cultural studies.

We welcome any student interested in examining music in its social context. Our program is particularly strong in traditional and popular musics of the Americas, Indonesia, East Asia, and Central Europe, with theoretical emphases on race, gender, performativity, religion, and politics. The small size of our graduate program allows close relationships between students and advisers.
