MUS 401 Senior Seminar
A capstone course for music majors emphasizing connections between theory, history, and practice. Through an in-depth study of three seminal masterpieces (e.g., Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony or Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire), this seminar considers the interrelations of analysis, historical and stylistic awareness, and performance practice. The course is offered every fall and is required of all music majors.
Prerequisite: Open only to music majors.
