University Majors

University of California, Riverside
Music and Culture B.A.

The major in Music or in Music and Culture provides students with the knowledge and awareness of music as a worldwide cultural phenomenon, and also develops students' critical acumen through a manifold approach to sound in its many cultural settings.

The Music and Culture Major offers an approach predominantly scholarly and critical to music-as-culture from the perspective of research, criticism, and interpretation, and with an emphasis on historical and ethnographic approaches. It is oriented primarily toward understanding music as a culturally expressive form rather than as objectified art. Courses in music and dance performance are required but are positioned more broadly within the major as a means to explore interrelationships between music and other forms of performance.
