I only took this for the minor. It was pretty boring, I really don't feel like I got anything out of it. I did enjoy the final project, which you can kind of make your own. It's an easy class.
I took this class as preparation for the Musicology minor and really loved it. Though it's a three hour class, it's only one hour of lecture and the rest is dedicated to weekly group presentations and guest speakers. One time, preparation for class involved listening to a podcast pop musicology and the two podcast hosts were in class the next session. It was really cool. Would definitely, definitely recommend. No tests just projects and Professor Schwartz is really cool.
I took this class because it was required for the musicology minor. The class is just a 3-hour seminar once a week, with weekly discussion forum posts, a midterm project, and a final project. The final project is pretty open-ended: you can choose to do a podcast, video shorts, or traditional paper on pretty much any topic of musicology that you want to do. You also are required to "lead" discussion with a group once during the quarter for about 1 hr-1.5 hrs. I found this class pretty difficult, especially because I didn't really have a lot of background knowledge for the specific topics that the professor focused on a lot in class (ex. punk music) and found that it was pretty difficult to contribute to discussion because I felt out of place (although being on Zoom might have contributed to it). During the later weeks, there were musicologist guest speakers that came in, which I thought was pretty cool at least. I was expecting more of an introductory-level course to what the study of musicology is, but I thought this course was disorganized, disjointed, and I'm not too sure what exactly I learned after ten weeks. Probably wouldn't recommend taking this class unless it's required for your major/minor.
