This research-oriented program emphasizes listening to and writing about music through the study of
selected repertoire from all periods of music history.
Students take at least four credits in music history, study German and art history, and in their final year write a major research paper. The goal is to prepare students for graduate work in musicology, library science, or in other careers that demand a broad knowledge of music, while giving them the skill to write about it.
