Music - Music Theory (MA)
||School of Graduate Studies
|Field of Study:
||Music Theory and Composition
||Music Theory is the study of musical structure. We learn how to construct music in historic and contemporary styles; how to deconstruct it through analysis and analytical modeling; and how to understand it through hermeneutic and historically informed interpretation. The music theory faculty at UofT is known for its strengths in Schenkerian analysis, musical form, theories of rhythm and meter, nineteenth-century music, and the music of the Second Viennese School.
All undergraduate students build musical fluency through two years of core courses in music theory, musicianship, and other skills. At the advanced undergraduate level, Music Theory features a variety of specialized courses, offering students the possibility to graduate with a major in Music History and Theory within the Mus.Bac. program. This major is designed with considerable flexibility to accommodate students’ individual interests: our students can elect to specialize in either Music History or Music Theory, or design a general major drawing from both areas. Another option is to combine this major with a minor in Composition.
