The Department of Music offers major and minor concentrations leading to the BA degree; programs leading to the MA in music with specializations in musicology, composition, or music education; and the PhD in musicology or a double concentration in musicology and music theory. Courses are offered in all areas of historical and theoretical study and research in the Western art music tradition, as well as in music theory and composition. The musicology faculty is strong in medieval, Renaissance, 18th-century, romantic, world music, and early 20th-century musical studies; in the history of music theory and criticism; and in research methodology. The department is closely allied with the School of Music at BU’s College of Fine Arts and courses are taught by CFA faculty members.
