GRADUATE PROGRAM IN MUSIC

Master’s degree program (12 to 30 months) and Doctorate degree program (24 to 48 months)

The Graduate Program in Music, Master’s and Doctorate degrees, is the consolidation of the idea developed at the Institute of Arts at UNICAMP, to create a generator center of musical studies that incorporates research and practice in various musical genres, including popular music. The program aims to provide training to professional musicians, teachers and researchers that qualify for the critical role both in the artistic as well as reflective contexts. Therefore, the program converges their studies to a single major area – Music: Theory, Creation and Practice – fostering the view that performance, creation and critical study are equally relevant to research in music.

Major area: Music: Theory, Creation and Practice
Research Topics:
1. Instrumental Studies and Musical Performance
2. Music, Culture and Society
3. Music, Language and Sonology
