Students explore the research process and enroll in three seminars focused on varying musical topics (recent topics include nineteenth-century instrumental music, John Cage and Wagner). As a final project, students write an article-length, original essay. With the M.A. in Musicology from University of New Hampshire, students can improve their skills and knowledge for use in research, education or performance; they are also prepared for doctoral programs in musicology or performance.
Following a long-standing tradition among our faculty, the university encourages students to pursue other areas of musical interest including applied study and performance in our many fine ensembles. Students emphasizing performance are encouraged to present recitals and lectures.
