The musicology and ethnomusicology area is unusual in American academia for its integration of musicology and ethnomusicology, history and ethnography. Students are encouraged to challenge the shifting boundaries between Western "art" repertories, non-Western traditions and popular music. Students receive solid training in a variety of historical/historiographical, analytical, cultural and ethnographic issues before specializing in a historical period, geographical area, or a combination of these and other fields. For more information, please visit the Musicology and Ethnomusicology Website.
