Musicology in Graz

Musicology in Graz is a Bachelors and a Masters program that is offered jointly by the University of Graz (Universität Graz) and the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz (Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Graz, aka Kunstuniversität Graz).

Musicology in Graz (in German: Musikologie) is a quantum leap forward in musicology studies. For the first time, a regional centre offers both the highest international standards and unusual breadth and choice.

The duration of the Bachelor program is 6 semesters (3 years, 180 ECTS credits). The Masters program lasts a further 4 semesters (2 years, 120 ECTS credits). Teaching is confined to two semesters, which last from 1 October to 31 January (winter semester) and from 1 March to 30 June (summer semester) in each year. The degrees offered are Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts Students may enrol in either of the two participating universities.


All students in the Bachelors program receive a thorough grounding in five main musicological subdisciplines. The subdisciplines are:

  • historical musicology (Musik in der Geschichte)
  • jazz and popular music (Jazz und Popularmusik)
  • ethnomusicology (Ethnomusikologie)
  • music psychology and acoustics (Musikpsychologie und Akustik)
  • Music aesthetics (Musikästhetik)


The only prerequisite for admission to the Bachelors program is high school matriculation or equivalent (e.g. A levels in the UK, Abitur in Germany). There is no additional entrance examination. Practical musical skills are recommended but not mandatory. The prerequisite for entry to the Masters program is a Bachelors degree in Musicology or equivalent from any
university in the world. Students holding a Bachelors degree in another discipline may be required to pass additional units before being admitted to the Masters program in musicology.
