As the following outline indicates, all Musicology PhD students must take at least four semesters (12 credits) of Advanced Seminar in Musicology. Beyond that, each individual student's program of studies is determined in consultation with the Musicology faculty, based on the results of the Doctoral Diagnostic Examination.

NOTE: Course requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Musicology consist of a minimum of 94 semester credits beyond the bachelor's degree. For a student who received the master's degree from the College of Music, all graduate-level credits (except those in MUH 5219 and MUT 5051*) count toward the doctorate. For a student whose master's degrees come from another program, thirty (30) credits from the master's degree count toward the 94, and the remaining 64 credits are completed at FSU (40 credits of coursework plus 24 credits of dissertation). The outline here shows the requirements including all graduate work.
