Что я буду изучать?

Earning your MA in Musicology gives you the opportunity to investigate music’s role and meaning in various social and historical contexts, through text-based analysis informed by cultural studies.

The small size of our program guarantees a great deal of specialized attention and the possibility of tailoring courses of study to suit your interests.

The MA is a thesis-based program, in which you take two required seminar courses and choose three other seminars before embarking on a thesis prospectus and then thesis research. Though the program is designed so that it can be completed in 12 months, students generally complete it over two academic years.

Once in the program, you are eligible for Dalhousie graduate scholarships and teaching assistantships in the Fountain School of Performing Arts.

Program structure:

You are required to take 5 courses (2 core required courses MUSC 5000 & 5001, plus 3 seminars), as well as a pass/fail thesis proposal ‘course’, which is an independent study to prepare for the thesis.

Normally you will do all of your course work in the first year and write your thesis during the summer, possibly carrying over into a second year.

Most of the seminars are cross-listed with senior undergraduate courses, but include readings and assignments over and above those expected of the undergraduates, and might involve extra meetings.
