HIST:383 Popular Music and History in the 20th Century.

Merging the study of music and history, this interdisciplinary class offers a unique way to understand people's lives in Europe and the United States in the 20th century. The focus on popular music, in particular, looks at recorded music, which helps minimize differences in students' abilities to read and analyze music. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing and either a 100-level history or 100-level music course (ideally both), or instructor’s approval. 4 SH. CC: Interdisciplinary.
