Students study analytical methods and theoretical knowledge in order to learn how such approaches enhance the understanding of musical works. They are exposed to research methods, notation and editing principles, source studies, and stemmatics to provide background on how to develop a critical text as the basis for musical interpretation. Learn more with this program in Musicology from Washington University in St. Louis.
