CONCENTRATING IN MUSIC

The Music Department at Harvard serves around 50 undergraduate concentrators (and a PhD program). Students reap the advantages of a smaller concentration: individual attention, friendliness, the opportunity to get to know faculty, fellow students, graduate students in music, and to become familiar with the department's many resources.

ABOUT THE CONCENTRATION

Where does a Harvard A.B. with a concentration in music bring you?
We've had graduates who have become lawyers, congressional aides, software developers, sound technicians, arts administrators, and speech pathologists, as well conductors, performers, and professors. The A.B. degree from Harvard with a concentration in Music is a liberal arts degree, and our students pursue careers in professions similar to anyone with liberal arts training. They also pursue careers as professional musicians, and many continue their studies and go on to become scholars.

The Harvard University Department of Music is devoted to the study and practice of music, and exists to provide a first-rate musical education that gives students advanced skills in music as well as knowledge of music history and repertory. Collaboration, creativity, scholarship and musicianship all figure prominently in the department's mission and practice. We offer both an undergraduate and a graduate program. Undergraduates receive an AB with a concentration in music, and graduate students complete a PhD program in historical musicology, ethnomusicology, theory, or composition. There is also a small AM degree program in Performance Practice, and a dual-degree (AB/MM) program that is a collaboration with New England Conservatory. The Music Department sponsors numerous concerts, colloquia, lectures and special music events each month, which are free to students and the public. [Read MORE]
