MA – The MA program offers core research training with an emphasis on the development of skills in ethnographic fieldwork. In addition to courses that ensure foundational breadth of knowledge, students undertake independent research that is original in design but manageable in scope. Graduate study in Ethnomusicology at Memorial University is interdisciplinary, with courses offered through both the School of Music and the Department of Folklore. Our program features media production courses in radio and video. The programs are housed at the Research Centre for the Study of Music, Media, and Place (MMaP), which boasts a Sundanese gamelan degung. MMaP draws world-renowned scholars through its Music & Culture Lecture Series, scholar-in-residence program, and international conferences. Many students enjoy active participation in the vibrant St. John’s traditional music scene.
