Brown has offered the Ph.D. in ethnomusicology since 1968.Past and current graduate students have researched such topics as flamenco guitar in Spain, folk music in the Tatra Mountains of Poland, music education in Egypt and Jordan, music and politics in a community radio station, Arab music in Indonesia, international interventions meant to reconstruct identity through music in formerly war-torn Bosnia, and the old-time string band musical culture of southwestern Virginia. A Brown doctoral degree in Music with specialization in ethnomusicology leads to a career in college and university teaching, or to a position in applied ethnomusicology outside of the academic world.
