Training socially responsible scholar-musicians of the highest caliber.

We value the many possibilities and pathways for meaningful work.

Our alumni have an excellent placement record in traditional academic positions as well as an array of music-related professions. As part of our program, students participate in an integration of public engagement, scholarship, and music making, while being a part of a national and international network of professional activities.

When entering the program, all students are considered for support in form of research and teaching assistantships and scholarships. Current students then have access to funding for research and conferences as well as a strong record of national and international fellowships and grants.


Research & Doing Musicology

The inseparability of scholarship, music making, and public engagement, as well as a collaborative and innovative research environment, engages our students, faculty, and communities across the globe. Students in our program are able to explore specialized studies programs in early and world music in addition to their primary are of study.

Our program is supported by a world-class collection of resources in the Warren D. Allen Music Library, an extensive collection of early music and world music instruments, FSU Sound and Video Archives, and a World Music Iconography Archive.

Making Music

Students merge research and study with musical performance in a wide variety of ensembles. Being part of a large, comprehensive college of music, musicology students are involved in many music performances on and off campus.

Strong Community

Our students are mentored by award winning, internationally recognized faculty in addition to fellow Masters and Doctoral students who bring vast experience to the program.
