This specialisation course is equivalent to MUSV3101 and MUSV3111 in both its design and its role in the composition line. The course is designed with a thematic framework that can include the history of music, popular music, ethnomusicology, or another musicological subdiscipline. The specific academic content in the course is not fully set, but will be posted on Innsida across the spring semester.
