The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Musicology provides students with the opportunity to study music history in greater depth in a structured program, preparing MM and DMA students to teach courses requiring music history knowledge, and thus enhancing their marketable skills. It also prepares graduates of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Music programs for further graduate study in musicology, and enhances the employability of students with an interest in public-sector music fields and arts administration.

The objectives of the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Musicology are to:

  • Develop a level-appropriate knowledge and understanding of musical styles, theories, and practices in their historical and cultural contexts
  • Increase cultural awareness and understanding of the Western art music tradition in relation to non-European musical traditions
  • Develop practical skills for teaching music history in the classroom
  • Develop research and writing skills in the field of music history.

The program is open to students with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music, or other undergraduate four-year degree who meet admission requirements. Additionally, it is open to UNCG students enrolled in MM, DMA and Ph.D. programs in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
