Musicology and Ethnomusicology

Be noted. How do you see music? When you apply history, culture, theory and interdisciplinary activity you view music in the big picture. Just as you always have.

About the Program

UF’s Musicology area integrates historical, cultural, theoretical, and interdisciplinary approaches that seek to understand music from multiple perspectives. The program nurtures an environment of collaborative research, teaching, and creative work among students and faculty and takes advantage of the University of Florida’s outstanding interdisciplinary strengths in African, Latin American, European, and Gender Studies as well as the Digital Worlds Institute. Courses and seminars in history, historical musicology, and ethnomusicology provide rigorous theoretical and practical training for our students.

Graduate students work closely with faculty mentors in research and teaching. In addition, faculty members are actively involved in musical performance and special opportunities exist for integrating performance, scholarship, and community involvement through our programs. Musicology is linked to UF’s Center for World Arts and World Music Ensembles, which provide opportunities for students to work directly with artists-in-residence from around the world in rehearsals, private instruction, performances, and outreach activities into the community.
