The study of performing arts focuses on both the theoretical and practical approaches in the many forms of artistic demonstration, including theater, music and dance. Students can study music either through an academic approach, a technical one, or both.
The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
