The Department of Music currently offers the Ph.D. in Music in two areas of study: Ethnomusicology and Computer Music and Multimedia (otherwise known as MEME: Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments). The long-standing doctoral program in Ethnomusicology, established in 1968, is one of the first in the country, while the MEME doctoral program became a fully-fledged Ph.D. in 2004. The small size of both allows for significant cross talk between the students. Such dialogues tend to reach beyond the department as well. Brown graduate students regularly explore offerings in many other disciplines as part of their courses of study. Students in ethnomusicology are to be found just as often in the music building as they are in anthropology, psychology, American Studies, Africana studies and Portuguese and Brazilian studies. In the same way, students in Computer Music and Multimedia make connections with faculty in Modern Culture and Media, Visual Art, Literary Arts and Engineering. At Brown, your degree is what you make it: the more adventurous you are, the more exciting your program is likely to be. If music affects you deeply, and if you are curious about music as a human activity, consider graduate work in ethnomusicology, the study of people making music. At Brown, students are free to explore the meanings of music and sound through broad and deep acquaintance with musical cultures throughout the world. Ethnomusicologists document, analyze, and interpret music both as design or structure, and as performance situated in its historical, aesthetic, and social contexts. This program based on ethnomusicology. In addition to ethnomusicology, there is Computer Music & Multimedia (MEME) also available.
