SGBH 102 - Music and Verse

4.00 credit hours
This “gateway” to the Humanities embraces two closely related arts: music and verse. Both reorganize our experience of time through heightened attention to a variety of formal parameters such as meter, rhythm, duration, silence and tone. In addition to critical examination of monuments in both arts from a wide range of historical and cultural contexts, students practice making verse and music in exercises designed to call attention to the interplay of formal constraint and freedom.

Cardinal Directions Designation(s): Arts, Ethical Dimensions, Global Understanding.
iCon(s): Innovating the World, Thinking Globally.
