Fall '99 Course Guide

Courses in Music History and Musicology (Division 678)

Fall Term, 1999 (September 8 December 22, 1999)

Take me to the Fall Term '99 Time Schedule for Music History and Musicology.


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 course is an upper-level survey of the history of music in the 17th and early 18th centuries, covering the period roughly 1570-1750, which is known as the Baroque era. The focus is on principal genres, composers, repertories, and issues generated by these. Musical works will be discussed on their own terms, as well as within broader cultural and historical frameworks. The work of the course consists of listening, score study, and reading both from required texts and from selected musicological studies. Grades will be based on written work (exams and papers to be determined) and class participation. Open to students in the School of Music; non-music students may elect the course with permission of the instructor, if they have sufficient prior preparation, such as a previous survey course in the period or MHM 345.
