MTSU is also home to the Center for Popular Music. The Center is one of the nation's oldest and largest research archives devoted to preserving and studying the full scope of American popular music. Director of the Center for Popular Music is Dr. Gregory Reish, who is also a School of Music faculty member.
Musicology is a great path for students interested in the why's of music, the history of music, and following threads that make up the larger whole of music. Taking music history classes and participating in ensembles as an undergradutate is a wonderful way to get your feet wet in the world of musicology. MTSU also offers a Master of Music in Musicology.
