The Musicology minor gives students the opportunity to develop an understanding of the cultural, historical, theoretical, and analytical situation of music across a variety of cultures and historical periods. Students complete two first-year courses which introduce the notion of inquiry-based musical scholarship. The two later year courses provide a broad understanding of styles of music writing (such as music criticism), as well as key theoretical and methodological skills. The final course in the minor introduces the study of key types of research documents and culminates on the writing of a research project using resources in one of Canberra’s cultural institutions.
Students completing the Musicology minor will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate skills and knowledge of the languages, forms, materials, and techniques of a range of musics;
- Develop and evaluate musical, cultural, and artistic ideas, concepts and processes by thinking creatively, critically and reflectively, and through engaging with genuine scholarship and research;
- Interpret, communicate and present ideas, problems and arguments to do with music and the arts in modes suited to a range of audiences, informed by inquiry and scholarship;
- Recognise and reflect on social, cultural and ethical issues, and apply local and, international perspectives to practice in music.
