Music Theory

The Division of Music Theory is committed to the instillment of a core of performative and analytical skills that will serve musical practitioners throughout their careers. The undergraduate music theory curriculum places an emphasis on integrated written and aural skills in a small-classroom environment. In upper-division and graduate courses, students apply these core skills to the study and analysis of a broad musical repertory. Students pursuing a bachelor's or master's degree in music theory work closely with our faculty to develop their interests in research and pedagogy and prepare themselves for careers in teaching and performance.

We encourage prospective students with an interest in music theory to contact us by email at musictheory .
