Musicology is about the history and theory of music in the cultural contexts from which it emerges and which it represents. For this reason, musicology uses interdisciplinary methods to analyze and interpret musical developments, structures, and institutions in their aesthetic, political, social, economic, and cultural contexts. The focus of research and teaching is on the historical consideration of music, complemented by interdisciplinary questions in the areas of theory and cultural studies.
