Faculty of Music


Welcome to Graduate Studies at the Don Wright Faculty of Music at Western University, Canada.

We offer programs of graduate studies leading to the MA, MMus, PhD, and DMA in all aspects of music: musicology, music theory, music education, composition, and performance. We also offer an interdisciplinary MA in Popular Music and Culture jointly with the Faculty of Information and Media Studies. The breadth and flexibility of our graduate programs are a direct consequence of our distinguished faculty, who include nationally and internationally recognized scholars, composers, and performers.


We invite you to explore these pages where you will find further information about our graduate programs, faculty, courses, admission requirements and funding.
