It is possible for LS&A students to elect a concentration program in music, and this program is described in the LS&A Bulletin. In addition, music courses are frequently elected by LS&A students not concentrating in Music. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, and Music Theory are elected for LS&A credit. Some of these courses can be used in an area distribution plan. LS&A students may elect music PERFORMANCE courses for degree credit, but this credit counts toward the maximum twelve non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward an AB/BS degree or twenty non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward a BGS degree. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, Music Theory, and Performing Arts Technology are listed in the Time Schedule under the School of Music.

The following courses count as LS&A courses for LS&A degree credit.

This introductory course will cover a variety of musical genres from selected cultures around the world. It aims to familiarize students with music sound and music structure, to guide them in listening to music on an analytical level, and to help them appreciate music both as a human activity with social functions, and as artistic expression. The broad cultural areas selected to receive primary focus this semester are Eastern Europe, Africa, Indonesia, India, and North America. The final unit will examine popular music from around the world. Musical genres include those of vocal, instrumental, solo, ensemble, and music as an accompaniment to theater and ritual. Music concepts such as melody, rhythm, texture, form and notation will be introduced. The course generously employs videos and audio tapes to complement its lectures, and will offer students an opportunity to apply skills learned during the term.

Listening will be assigned from the class tapes which accompany the text book, Worlds of Music. Class readings will also be assigned from this text, although two supplementary articles, and music will be assigned in the course of the term. All supplementary readings will be placed on reserve in the Music Library in the School of Music. It is the responsibility of the students to copy/read this material before the class for which it is assigned. It is assumed that students have completed all assigned reading before each lecture. If readings are unclear, please ask the professor to clarify them for you.

During the academic term there will be six short quizzes given at the beginning of the class period during which they are scheduled (approx. one per geographic region) worth 20% of the grade. The midterm exam will be worth 30% and the final, which is cumulative, will be worth 50% points.
