MUS 221-35 Music History I (Online Course)

Music History is a required course for all music majors, no matter what the discipline. This is a one-year online course divided into two semesters. The first semester covers Western music from the Medieval Period through the Baroque Period. The second semester covers the Classical Period through to today's Modern music.

For non-music majors and music lovers, this course provides a more in-depth view into the history of Western music than the introductory course of Music Appreciation. Non-music majors can choose whichever history period they wish to study, or both semesters for that matter.

Come delve into the past, learn the musical traditions and let that knowledge carry you through a lifetime of enlightened musical appreciation.
