Undergraduate students can major in Musicology or combine it through their undergraduate studies (please note that some electives require preliminary knowledge of music theory and/or harmony). Students wishing to benefit from both performance and intellectual aspects of music may take one of the joint programs offered by the Musicology Department and the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. The Department also offers seminars at the MA and PhD levels and seeks to cultivate expert musicologists who will not only be able to teach at the highest level, but also to produce original research. Information for overseas students wishing to enroll in degree programs at the Hebrew University may be found here in several languages.
The joint program of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (JAMD) and the Musicology Department at the Hebrew University
The joint program of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and the Musicology Department at the Hebrew University combines B.Mus. or B.Ed.Mus studies at JAMD in either performance, composition, conducting or music pedagogy, with B.A. studies in musicology at the Hebrew University, towards a joint degree—B.A.Mus. The joint program combines every major track and its diverse curriculum at JAMD, with courses in musicology focusing on historical and cultural musicology, theory and analysis in various genres and periods, music cognition, research methods, and more.
The joint program is designed for students who wish to pursue research oriented graduate studies. Prospective graduate students with a B.A.Mus will be exempt from enrolling in extra courses towards their M.A. studies at the Hebrew University. While challenging, the joint program is recommended for outstanding students seeking to broaden their educational experience in both musical practice and scholarly discourses on music.
