Master of Arts in Ethnomusicology

We are pleased to announce that, after several semesters on hold, the Ethnomusicology Program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is again ready to accept graduate students, starting Spring 2024 (application deadline August 1, 2023). The program is headed by Dr. R. Anderson Sutton, with additional staff resources that include four other scholars with PhDs in ethnomusicology (one affiliated faculty member and four other part-time lecturers), and an able cadre of ensemble teachers, which allows us to offer a wide range of academic and performance courses. We encourage applicants from all regions. There are a number of funding sources available on a competitive basis. Interested parties should contact Prof. Sutton at for information prior to applying.
