The curriculum of studies deals with three main areas:
- History, Theory and Text focuses on the different types of text through which European music is handed down: manuscripts and scores, theoretical writings, concert critiques, institutional documents.
- Music and Stage deals with the various aspects of music written for the stage, from Monteverdi to the present day.
- Music in Society and Media explores the relationships between music and society and their different conceptualizations in theory, in addition to the role of music in multimedia production.
Finally, a workshop on Musical Archives and Libraries as well as work experience with concert societies, publishers and research centres round off the professional training provided.
