Musicology Courses

The Department of Musicology offers both academic and ensemble classes in music from various traditions around the world, including jazz, Euroamerican concert music, popular music, and others, focusing on analytical, historical, political, and socio-cultural details of music.

Conservatory students, depending on their major or concentration, may be required to take MUSY 101 . Those students with a good background in music history and literature may be exempted from MUSY 101  by passing an examination given only during Orientation in late August. College of Arts and Sciences students with some music background may take MUSY 101 . For College students without such a background, there are additional options at the 100-level. Transfer students entering in February are strongly recommended to take MUSY 101  the following fall semester.
