FAA 3100 - Music and Spirituality

Credits: 4
This course uses musical activity as a lens to explore the multifarious ways in which music participants seek to connect with the sacred world. During the course of the semester, we will investigate a variety of compositions from many different cultures, geographical locations, and time periods that directly address the divine. Our central questions will include the following: How can music become a conduit for accessing the spiritual realm? Must specific conditions be in place to do so? Why are music and religion so closely connected in such a myriad of cultures?
