Higher Studies in music

Columbia University

As we enter our second century, the Department’s mission is to support and profess scholarly and scientific inquiry into music, and equally the creative activity of music composition, at the highest levels of rigor and innovation, for both graduate and undergraduate students, specialists and non-specialists in music, and a diverse constituency that spans both across and beyond Columbia University. While we do not offer any degrees in music performance, we also provide a high quality performance offering to a wide range of student musicians, integrated with our academic curriculum.
