I've been looking through Google trying to find a decent (legit) college in the US, that has a Musicology program/degree. The only well known college I came across was Ohio State. However, I really can't afford a state school like that. Does anyone know of any other schools that specifically offer a degree in Musicology.

Bare in mind, I'm not just talking about music here... it's music PSYCHOLOGY. So I don't really think the Power Chord Academy should even be mentioned in this thread.

EDIT: Forgot to mention... preferably a school in NY or AZ. Although, if the school's program is worth it, I wouldn't be apposed to other states.

You do realise that Musicology and Music Psychology are completely different fields?

Since you just said 'Does anyone know of any schools that specifically offer Musicology?', but then said 'I'm talking Music PSYCHOLOGY here', it doesn't seem to quite add up... ?

Different? yes. Completely different? no. The two go hand in hand for what I want to do... or should I say... try to do.

What do you want to do?

I'm hoping to become a music therapist/or a neuropsychologist specialising in Music (like Oliver Sacks). But since I live in the UK theres a major lack of uni courses that really relate to both Psychology AND Music ...

Well I guess you could say I want to understand how music affects people (emotionally, physiologically, etc.) and then how to create music in a way to implement those emotions. Kind of like Music Therapy, but more of the testing/research side of it.

lol, the only colleges that I seem to find are located in the UK. Although I doubt they're really regarded as 'good' schools. I always thought the UK specialized in more the Musical side of Psychology? At least compared to the US.

You can double major in psychology and music. Or you can do a psychology degree while getting a music minor. Most psychology majors go on to do a graduate study, and that's where it gets more specific. You're not going to have a music psychology focus during your undergraduate years anyways. There may be a class or two, but to become an expert you're going to have to go the psychology route, play music in your spare time, and then when you have a PH.D you'll be doing the research yourself.
