About

The Music programme of The Chinese University of Hong Kong have the longest history and also the largest intake of research postgraduates in Hong Kong.

Overview

About the programme

The Department offers MMus and DMus research degree programmes in Composition and MPhil and PhD research degree programmes in three research concentrations, namely Historical Musicology, Theory, and Ethnomusicology.  Research in HIstorical Musicology and Theory focuses mainly on Western Music, while that in Ethnomusicology emphasizes Chinese Music and other non-Western music cultures.

Although the concentrations in the Music programme of The Chinese University of Hong Kong reflect recognized professional boundaries, the faculty as a whole embraces the spirit of interdisciplinary research and is actively engaged in diverse modes of scholarly inquiry. In keeping with international practice, postgraduate studies in composition lead towards the professional degree titles of MMus and DMus, while that in the other three research concentrations, ethnomusicology, historical musicology, and theory, lead towards the MPhil and PhD. Our research postgraduate students, in addition to formal courses, have many other opportunities to become exposed to the latest academic research in music. The department research forum series offers a platform for faculty and PhD students to present their work in progress, and the colloquium series features guest lectures by international scholars on a regular basis. Faculty- and University-wide interdisciplinary lectures, forums and conferences, and exchange opportunities are also available.
