Music - Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Medieval and Renaissance StudiesMusic, General
Description The Department of Music offers the Master of Music (MMus) and the MA in Music. There are two streams, one leading to performance, the other to musical research in the fields of musicology or theory. Members of the Department are engaged in research in the following fields: musicology, theory, and performance. The collaborative master’s in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MDR) has two goals: To offer at the graduate level a multi-disciplinary education in Medieval and Renaissance Studies; To teach students the theoretical approaches and methods of research specific to the study of the period. Since the 16th century, study of the middle ages implies studying a ‘middle’, or intermediary period, seen as standing between two great civilizations: Roman antiquity and the modern western world. This definition has had a major impact on scholarship, crystallizing a periodization that has now become traditional in most of the humanities.
