General Program Statement
The ethnomusicology program at Michigan State is designed to produce
scholars who intend to participate in the current theoretical and
methodological debates in the fields of ethnomusicology, folklore, and
anthropology. In addition, graduates also gain fluency in Western music history
and theory, and acquire the ability and experience to teach courses in both
ethnomusicology and Western music history. Our graduate students engage in
research in diverse areas that extend beyond the specialization of our faculty.
If a student chooses a topic outside the expertise of the College of Music
faculty, we will locate specialists to help in the preparation of the thesis.
Fellowships and teaching assistantships are available.
Two assistantships available in per year to outstanding incoming students.
