The Department of Musicology takes a broad view of music-centered research
and aims to equip students to become leading researchers and teachers in a
variety of academic and/or public sector settings. Reflecting Miami’s
geographical location and cultural identities, the department’s strengths
include musics of the Americas (including the Caribbean) and Europe, the
interplay of local and global musical sounds and repertories, and
interdisciplinary approaches to musicological research. Our research and
teaching explore how making, distributing, and experiencing music reflect
and shape individual and group identities and values. Our program overview,
course offerings, and degree requirements may be examined in further detail
via the Musicology Department website: 

Students seeking the degree of Master of Music in Musicology enjoy a
balanced curriculum of study in music literature and analysis,
ethnomusicology, critical theory, and research methods, along with
opportunities to develop skills in music performance, composition, and
pedagogy. Coursework in the program is designed to enable students to
acquire in-depth knowledge of music history and culture and to develop
students’ abilities to write and talk effectively about relevant issues
within musicology and related disciplines. Graduate students work closely
with the Frost School’s renowned faculty of musicologists and
ethnomusicologists, exploring the rich variety of music history and culture.
