The purpose of the Society for Musicology is to promote academic excellence among musicology students by offering opportunities for professional development, including, but not limited to, colloquia, workshops, and presentations by scholars in the discipline. The Society also seeks to foster collegiality by assisting new students to transition into the musicology graduate program, to create a positive learning environment for all students, and to promote a sense of community among students and faculty.  The Society strives to build relationships between music and its sister disciplines, and holds events each year that encourage dialogue between scholars from the Florida State University and other institutions.


All activities of the Society for Musicology shall be legal under University, local, state, and federal laws.
