Applications to the Musicology program are accepted at the graduate level only. The only exception made is for current NEC undergraduate performance or composition majors, who may apply during their second year to transfer into the Music History major for their third and fourth years. We do not accept undergraduate transfer students from outside institutions into the Music History major.
There is no audition for Musicology applicants. Instead, applicants must submit at least three research papers demonstrating superior writing ability and a strong interest in historical subjects. All research papers can be uploaded as a part of our online application. If invited, applicants must interview with the Musicology faculty before the end of February. The Admissions Office will provide assistance in arranging an interview date.
