MUS 231-239 Selected Studies in World Music

The goal of these courses is to explore the indigenous music of selected cultures and regions independent of Western common practice." Through guided listening performance activities and cultural analysis students experience both the aural landscape and the larger phenomenon of how music functions within culture. Possible topics include the musical culture of a region (e.g. Africa Asia Latin America) or a country (e.g. Japan China India). Descriptions are available through the department office and the Registrar's Office."
