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.

All units in the School for Studies in Art and Culture (SSAC) have graduate programs at the Masters level  (for more information about the Music and Culture MA please click here). As well, most full-time faculty members in the SSAC can supervise PhD dissertations through the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC).
