What is it about? The Department of Music offers courses designed to meet the needs of students reading for a degree with either a specialist or non-specialist emphasis on music. Its curriculum has been designed with the following aims in mind: 1. To deepen students' understanding of the functions, concepts, structures, and values of music and its role in society; 2. To broaden students' knowledge of the diverse musical cultures of the world and their histories, styles, and ideas; 3. To train students to think critically about music and equip them with the verbal skills which will enable them to articulate their thinking; 4. To promote creative activity in the composition and performance of music as a mode of discourse that uniquely complements other modes of discourse in the humanities; 5. To provide a comprehensive education that integrates the activities of scholarship, composition, and performance, connecting them to the larger world of learning in the humanities, the sciences, and commerce. The curriculum consists of a series of courses covering a wide range of topics and approaches at introductory and advanced levels. Cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary interests are particularly encouraged.
