Program Description

From the Middle East to Java, from the concert halls of Vienna to drumming and dance circles of Ghana, from Renaissance Venice to the modern computer lab, Tufts Music embraces music in forms from many different backgrounds, traditions, and cultures.

Tufts' ethnomusicology program is integrated into the undergraduate music curriculum, and available as an independent course of study at the graduate level. Advanced course work and thesis research support is strong in Western classical music, African-American music, and World Music (Africa, East and Southeast Asia, and Latin America).

Additional Resources

Tufts' Department of Music hosts the Boston Village Gamelan and owns sets of Japanese and African musical instruments used in performance ensembles.
