The music curriculum offers a wide range of courses for the music minor. It also has strong appeal to the general student, especially in the activities of the instrumental and vocal ensembles. Objectives--Students become familiar with the traditions of Western and non-Western music through theoretical analysis, research, performance, and historical survey. The curriculum fosters the development of the critical ability necessary to understand those traditions. Students experience the unique relationship between research and performance in music. Theoretical and practical courses that provide a sound academic background in music are available for those who intend to pursue graduate study, teach, or fulfill general education requirements.
