The Music programs at Carleton provide a solid grounding in the practice, analysis and history of European classical music from the Middle Ages to the present. In addition, they focus on more recently developed areas such as Canadian music, American music, computer music, composition, ethnomusicology, jazz, popular music, the sociology of music, and gender studies. It is possible to undertake performance in popular and traditional musics, and to study the theory and analysis of jazz and popular styles. Learn more.
