Interview and Exams

During the interview, faculty will be interested to learn more about your past work and your interest in pursuing graduate work in musicology at Peabody.

  • Faculty will have read your writing sample and will also have some specific questions for you about this work.
  • In addition to the written exams required of all master’s applicants, students who pass the pre-screening process in musicology will also complete a written exam in music history.
