M.A. in Musicology and M.L.S. in Library Science

Add an M.A. in musicology or music theory to your M.L.S.

The M.A. in musicology is offered through the Department of Musicology at IU’s Jacobs School of Music—one of the top-ranked musicology programs in the nation.

This pairing is ideal if you have an interest in pursuing the scholarly study of music at one of the best music schools in the world.

The combination of degrees will prepare you for a career with an academic music library, special collection, or archive. Other possibilities include working in an orchestra library or the music collections at a public library or museum.

Estimate your tuition and fees

IU’s tuition and fees tool allows you to forecast the cost of credit hours and mandatory fees for your ILS graduate education.

To be considered full time, you must enroll in at least nine credit hours. Anything less is considered part time, which is an option for all students. You can also choose to enroll in more than nine credits if it better suits your goals.

Credit hour fees are different in every school. To get the best estimate of how much your tuition will cost each semester, search tuition rates for both of your dual-degree programs.
