Course description

This course introduces students to research and theory about how music relates to human behaviour. Students will develop an understanding of the how music influences and is embedded in a range of human behaviours. The psychological, emotional, social and physical facets underpinning connections between music and human behaviour, across the lifespan, and in varied socio-cultural contexts, will be explored. In this course, lectures and assessment tasks enable students to learn through experiential activities that link learning to the real world.
