Music History and Literature

The three music history and literature courses at UNC Pembroke offer an in-depth survey of the development of music in both non-Western and Western cultures from Antiquity to the present. Classes are open to all music majors, music minors, and non-majors, with permission of the instructor. MUS 2940 (The World of Music: Antiquity to the Baroque Era) satisfies the University's General Education requirements in the Arts and MUS 2930 (The World of Music: Classical to the Contemporary Era) may be used as an Arts and Humanities Elective.
MUS 3970 (Global Study) presents a survey of World Music from political, social, and general cultural, as well as musical, perspectives. Coursework includes a major music history project and exhibition.
