Welcome! We are pleased to hear of your interest in Musicology studies at the Baylor University School of Music.
The Musicology program enables students to take advantage of both the professional applied music setting within the School of Music and the interdisciplinary, humanistic environment of a major research university. Classes in research methods and current issues in musicology and ethnomusicology are supplemented by seminars open to musicologists, music theorists, composers, and performers. The Musicology program focuses on helping students refine their skills in critical thinking, research, and writing, encouraging application of a broad range of approaches and methodologies.
Special strengths of Musicology at Baylor include our excellent teaching faculty, our small class sizes, and the personal attention our students receive both in and out of class. The faculty includes specialists in all eras of western music history; these professors also have expertise in Ethnomusicology, Opera Studies, Beethoven Studies, Latin American Music, and Performance Practice.
If you have questions at any stage in the application/audition process, please feel free to email Jann Cosart.
