This study analyzed and compared the curricula of university music departments in Taiwan through time. The curricula were collected from each university before and after the abolition of Martial Law (c.1987) as well as Education Reform (c.1997). The curricula were created by the music departments of Taipei National University of the Arts (TNUA), National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), and Soochow University (SCU) which represent arts university, normal university, and comprehensive university, respectively. The trend of the curriculum in the three universities reflected the changes of music departments through time. Arts universities, normal universities, and comprehensive universities share commonalities but differentiate by specialties.
