Music Humanities Bulletin

Since 1947, Music Humanities has awakened in students an appreciation of music in the Western world, it has helped them respond intelligently to a variety of musical idioms, and it has engaged them in the debates about the character and purposes of music that have occupied composers and musical thinkers since ancient times. Like Art Humanities, Music Humanities evolved from the Humanities B optional music and fine arts requirement of 1937.
