The Master of Music in Musicology degree offers research and teaching experience to students planning to continue studies of musicology or ethnomusicology at the doctoral level as well as to performers with strong academic interests pursuing the program as part of a dual major. In addition to engaging coursework opportunities in western classical, jazz, and a variety of other musics, students in the MM program also have access to a rich set of archival materials, including the William Grant Still, Florence Price, and Ozark folksong collections and benefit from close advising from musicology faculty on thesis projects.
