New doctorate in contemporary music expands BGSU’s offerings

With the addition of a new doctoral program, BGSU has become one of the only universities in the United States where students can receive a doctorate in contemporary music.

Graduates of the program will be trained as composers or performers conversant in the aesthetic, technical and philosophical aspects of contemporary music (defined loosely as music created after 1945). They will also be prepared to teach in the classroom or the studio at the university level, as well as to fill other community arts leadership positions.

“We feel excited about having the opportunity of forging new territory on the national scene,” said Dr. Marilyn Shrude, Distinguished Artist Professor in music.

Shrude, along with Provost John Folkins; Dr. Richard Kennell, dean of the College of Musical Arts, and Dr. Heinz Bulmahn, dean of the Graduate College, has been working with music faculty for more than two years to win approval from the Ohio Board of Regents for the new doctor of musical arts degree. The regents formally approved the program in May.
