Musicology Major

This major offers a broad cultural education that unites academic and musical training. It also provides preparation for the graduate study required for research and teaching in musicology or ethnomusicology.

Students must complete a fourth-level college foreign language course or its equivalent for graduation. French, German, or Italian are strongly encouraged.

The fourth-year student, working with an adviser, must complete a satisfactory thesis (MUS 299) as part of the requirements for the Music History Major Bachelor of Music Degree.
