Description: Music and Culture engages students interested in enriching their knowledge of musical cultures past and present, and deepening their understanding of music as a part of human experience, across historical periods and within different social and cultural contexts. We offer a range of theoretical and practical courses in music history, theory/composition, culture, and performance, and the program provides students with a broad knowledge of current directions in musicology as well as a critical grasp of music’s role in society and culture, from local communities to global perspectives.

Our program embraces studies in classical music, jazz, world, film, theatre, electronic, and popular music. A simple placement process helps to determine the courses appropriate to each incoming student’s level of musical training. In addition to the courses forming the core of our major and minor programs, we offer a wide range of general interest courses that require no prior musical experience.
