Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Fields of Study

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. 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.
