Musicology students at CCM work closely with internationally recognized musicology faculty.

Musicologists also pursue interdisciplinary research across campus.

CCM offers MM and PhD degrees, as well as a combined MM/PhD in Musicology. Graduate students are given ample opportunities to teach both lower and upper-level courses and develop pedagogical skills. Renowned scholars visit CCM regularly to teach, lecture and meet informally with students to discuss their research.

Students are eligible for generous four and six-year financial packages, and may receive summer support for comprehensive exam preparation. CCM also provides support opportunities for student research, conference attendance and dissertation completion.

Student Experience
CCM’s Musicology curriculum includes seminars in special topics, which reflect the research interests of faculty members. The Musicology Colloquium assists students in their professional development and offers students the opportunity to present their research and participate in scholarly discourse.

Founded in 1986, the Music Research Forum is a peer-reviewed journal edited and produced by CCM graduate students. In addition, CCM students organize and develop the biennial Music Theory and Musicology Society’s scholarly conference.
