Welcome to the Department of Musicology!

Here we conduct studies and research in both older and newer music as well as in different cultures and ethnicities. We offer courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level as well as at the graduate level. In undergraduate education are Musicology A, B and C, and Music Theory. The course can either be part of Musicology A (along with History of Music), or as a separate course. We also have a large number of distance learning courses that can be read regardless of where you are.

On the second level there is the Master Programme in the Humanities 120 hp. There you can choose if you want to get a one-year education and get a master's degree or two years with a master's degree. The master includes project of 30 credits in the Master's degree is 45 credits. If you already have a Master's, you can choose to supplement with a thesis of 15 credits, and thus obtain a master's degree. You can read more about the program if you go to university education page and then looking through to the Master Programme in the Humanities.
