The Musicology Academic Area offers degrees in the following programs.
Because we are an academic area within a School of Music, there are many performance opportunities available to our students, including a minor in performance for Ph.D. students. Musicology students have performed with such Catholic University ensembles as the CUA Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Choir, and the Town and Gown Community Chorus, and have also sung roles in Catholic University opera productions. All qualified students are eligible to register for applied lessons in voice, instrumental performance, and/or composition.
