Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Graduate Programs by College

The School of Music participates with the faculties in art, theatre & dance, and philosophy in an interdisciplinary program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Fine Arts. Students engage a core curriculum of 15 hours that emphasizes interdisciplinarity among the arts: four required courses include a colloquium that explores disciplinary formation and types of interdisciplinary engagement; arts histories; arts in a contemporary context; and philosophical aesthetics. An additional approved topics or aesthetics course completes a student’s core program. Work within the disciplinary track of music ordinarily involves an individualized curriculum that allows the candidate to pursue a professional goal relating to personal competencies and culminates in a dissertation. Concentrations are available in musicology, music theory, music education, and arts administration. Students in the musicology concentration must demonstrate reading and writing proficiency in two foreign languages prior to completion of the program. The doctoral degree program with major in Fine Arts requires a minimum of 60 semester hours; the residence requirement is fulfilled by satisfactory completion of 18 semester hours of graduate coursework during one 12-month period. This program is explained in the introductory catalog section to the Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts.
