Overview

Master of Arts in Music - Musicology

This program is for talented music students interested in the diverse ways in which music’s political, social, and historical contexts shape its meanings.  

Students are introduced to foundational methodologies and develop critical thinking skills, while exploring themes in musicological literature and refining analytical skills. 

In the Non-Thesis option, expertise in two areas is developed through two written papers.

An option exists for specialization in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies

  • Collaborations with students from other areas and the doctoral program in seminars facilitate out-of-the-box thinking.
  • Links with other departments, the Institute for the Public Life of Art and Ideas, and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology.
  • Grant writing and paper presentation mentoring with international success.
