Student Profile(s)

Joel Katz

At this point I feel as though I could learn just about anything, given sufficient time and motivation. I can't emphasize enough how much I owe you and my other profs in the Sheffield program... This year I will be going on to a PhD in Musicology, co-sponsored by the Psychology department at a major university in Toronto. The Master's degree has gotten me more work already; I have been hired to teach undergraduate music history.
