Tailor your program to suit your interests
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. This is normally a two-year degree.
Once in the program, you are eligible for Dalhousie graduate scholarships and teaching assistantships in the Fountain School of Performing Arts.
