Ohio University
School of Disciplinary Arts

 

Type of Program and Degrees Offered

 

A PhD program in Interdisciplinary Arts with ethnomusicology/musicology as the primary area. 

 

Program Statement

 

Students in the ethnomusicology/musicology track have two options:

Option 1 is to write a dissertation that explores music and its connections with one secondary area. There are five potential secondary areas:

African Arts and Literatures
Art and Architectural History
Film Studies
Philosophy of Art
Theater

For example, let's say a student wrote an MA thesis on music in Tunisia. Perhaps this student is also interested in film studies. The student could focus her or his dissertation on music and film in Tunisia. Option 1 tends to appeal to students who are completing MA theses in ethnomusicology or musicology. Previous graduate-level courses in ethnomusicology include Current Issues in Ethnomusicology; Interdisciplinary Approaches to Music and Language; and Engaging World Music Theories: Raga, Dastgah, Makam, and Maqam.

Option 2 is called the "scholar/artist track." Here, the student's secondary area is private study with one of the professors in the School of Music. Option 2 tends to appeal to students who are completing their MA degree in performance or composition but also have an interest in scholarship. The culminating component of the scholar/artist track is an integrated scholarly/creative dissertation.
