The department

The Department of Music Studies belongs to the School of Philosophy of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The Department has a strong research profile in all scientific disciplines related to the study of music. All members of staff are scientists with a Doctorate in their chosen areas of study, and many are also practicing musicians with national and international performing careers.

The Department is divided into three sectors:

1. Historical and Systematic Musicology
2. Ethnomusicology and Cultural Anthropology
3. Sound technology, Music Pedagogy and Byzantine Musicology

The Department offers a five - year undergraduate degree in Music Studies. The current aim of the Department is for the degree to be recognised as an equivalent to a Masters Degree (MA) in the near future.

Graduates of the Department can go on to postgraduate studying in Greece and abroad. The Department also offers an inter-departmental Masters Course entitled "Music Culture and Communication: Anthropological and Communicational Approaches to Music", in collaboration with the Department of Communication and Media of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. More Masters degrees are foreseen for the near future.

The Department also has a large active community of PhD students in all areas of research.
