The Ethnomusicology program boasts four full-time faculty members offering a diverse range of geographically and theoretically oriented courses, with particular area strengths in Hindustani, Southeast Asian, East Asian, Caribbean, South American, Middle Eastern, Central Asian, North African, North American, and Popular Musics.

The University of Toronto is a top-ranked institution of research and higher education with a vast array of departments and specialized centres in which ethnomusicology graduate students are encouraged to participate. Our faculty and students have regular interaction with the Departments of Anthropology, Religious Studies, Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations; South Asian Studies, and the Centre for Transnational and Diaspora Studies. We are also involved in projects with the Jackman Humanities Institute and the Ethnography Lab.
The University of Toronto is uniquely situated in the heart of one of the most culturally vibrant and diverse cities in the world. Our downtown campus is steps away from Canada’s media and financial hubs; the city’s downtown core; and a number of distinctive neighbourhoods including Kensington Market, Chinatown, Koreatown, and The Village. Faculty and students conduct fieldwork at local urban field sites in Toronto as well as in many areas of the world.
