In recent times, strong links have developed between theory and other disciplines, such as mathematics, psychology, ethnomusicology, and philosophy.
The masters and doctoral programs in Music Theory at the University of Washington prepare students for careers in teaching and research, providing a firm grounding in the essentials of the discipline while keeping pace with a field that is constantly changing.
Students in the program live and work in a notably stimulating musical environment, both within the School, with its vigorous commitment to contemporary art music, jazz, and world music as well as to the Western classical tradition; and in Seattle at large, with its first-rate professional orchestra, opera, ballet, repertory jazz orchestra, and lively contemporary music scene.
