The Sydney Conservatorium of Music places a high emphasis on its research activity. We have a vibrant and diverse community of staff and students, many of whom enjoy exceptional careers worldwide as both performers and scholars in the finest musical company.
The Master of Music (Musicology) is a two year full-time or four year part-time degree which aims to train students to become independent scholars in their chosen field of musicology and to communicate their findings in appropriate written and spoken forms. The program of study culminates in a thesis on a topic of the candidate's choice which has been approved by the faculty. Musicology at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music embraces many fields including western historical musicology, ethnomusicology, empirical musicology, popular music studies and more.
