The M.A. program in musicology teaches practices and methods for describing, analyzing, and critically evaluating works of music of all genres and periods and placing them in their cultural, political, economic, and social context. Special emphasis is placed on developing the students’ sensitivity and sense of judgment concerning the formal and aesthetic elements of these works and their significance. Analytical tasks train the students to express their practical listening experiences in words, thus building on the skills in composition and forming a mental image of music they acquired in the B.A. program and extending their grasp of the history of music and their familiarity with a broad musical repertoire. The overarching goal is to train and strengthen the students’ powers of critical thinking and judgment with regard to methodology and developing their own critical standpoint.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
