Before 1967 the theoretical musical training of the students was carried out by the Division of Musical Theory, History and Composition. The formation of the national musicology science and education is connected with the work of famous musicologists of their days Yu. Letetsky, M. Minenkova, M. Shifrin, S. Nisnevich, L. Moukharinskaya. They are all graduates of the Moscow and St. Petersburg Conservatoires in the class of world-famous researchers of music I. Sposobin, L. Mazel, K. Koushnaryov, B. Levik and others. From the moment of foundation in 1968 of independent Divisions of Musical Theory (Head – K. Stsepantsevich) and Musical History (Head – G. Glouschenko) the research and methodical activities in the sphere of musicology became much more animated. A notable event of musicology of the period was publication of "The History of Belarusian Soviet Music" (Minsk, 1971).

The Division is uniting the teachers who possess great experience of research and training work, including Candidates of Musicology, Professor of the Division R. Aladova, Assistant Professors L. Volkova, A. Karpilova, N. Ganul, S. Nemtsova-Hambaryan, Senior Teacher A. Volodkovich and others. The Division is headed Candidate of Musicology, Assistant Professor A. Oleynikova. The most essential scientific developments were made at the Division in the field of musical textual studies and history of Russian and Belarusian music. In the process of active development are also new scientific directions, including oriental and American studies, cinema music and others.

In September 2017 the division became a part of the Division of Music History and Music Belarusian Studies.
