Music PhD in Musicology

Overview

Musicology

The graduate program in musicology offers rigorous and broad training in the intellectual history of the field. Students benefit from collaboration with faculty and students in ethnomusicology and composition, and from opportunities to take occasional seminars at other UC campuses. The small size of our graduate program allows close relationships between students and advisers. Ratings a few years ago by the National Research Council identified us as one of the strongest departments in the country.

Recent seminars have included such diverse topics as cover songs, improvisational practices, opera and national identity, and the music of Debussy. Completed dissertations have included studies of music and culture in the 16th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Many students have gone on to good jobs, including the University of Texas at San Antonio, and recent hires at the University of New Mexico, University of Alaska, California State University Sacramento, and Florida State University.
