Examining the broad cultural import of music framed within social contexts

The Master of Arts in Music at the University of Nevada, Reno includes courses on film music, American music, world music and jazz. The University's music history courses are designed to examine music and composers in broad cultural and social contexts through highly interdisciplinary approaches, particularly at the graduate level.

The graduate seminar in Music History covers many topics, including:

  • Representations of Gender and Sexuality in Opera
  • Music Institutions
  • Music and Postmodernism
  • Aesthetics and Techniques of Program Music vs. Absolute Music
  • Jazz Cultures

The Music Department regularly invites guest lecturers to provide students with an opportunity to become acquainted with current topics in musicological studies and to meet renowned musicologists in diverse areas of specialization.
