Graduate Studies

Degree Programs:

The Master of Music programs in Performance, Performance/Pedagogy, and Conducting directly address the variety of career and life skills contemporary musicians must possess. As the largest music school in Atlantic Canada, MUN is able to complement its intensive performance studies with a wide range of experiential opportunities for graduate students, from teaching and community engagement, to entrepreneurial and arts advocacy projects.

The M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Ethnomusicology offer nationally distinctive and regionally unique opportunities for individuals who are interested in researching music as a cultural practice. The programs offer opportunity to study diverse traditions of local and “world” music. We also offer courses in radio and video ethnographic documentary making with editing facilities available at the Research Centre for Music, Media and Place (MMaP). Graduate study in Ethnomusicology at Memorial University is interdisciplinary, with courses offered through both the School of Music and the Folklore Department.
