Musicology course

Although the subject matter of musicology is music, it arises from the entire range of intellectual interests. The types of music studied ranges across the whole spectrum of time and geography, and from so-called “art music” to folk music. Issues considered include not only music per se, but also the historical and social functions of music, and the philosophical foundation of music’s claim to “beauty.” Divorced from personal preferences, the significance of music as a part of our cultural inheritance is examined. Students are required to develop the ability to express themselves persuasively in writing when presenting their theses.
