Department of Musicology
Aims & Objectives

The undergraduate program in Musicology aims at providing students with a sound initial foundation in the understanding of South Asian Classical Music in terms of its technical/aesthetic origins, concept, history, evolution and structure. The aim is to stimulate an intelligent, critical and dynamic awareness of the conceptual block, upon which the edifice of our practical classical music was built in its origins and to revive South Asian Classical music as a significant and meaningful part of people's lives.

The main objective of this program is to rediscover and recreate the link between a meaningful theory and practice of music, the premise being that music becomes true art only when its practice is integrated with serious musicology. The two of them become a cohesive whole, giving rise to a dynamic process of creativity. The program also aims to produce music of the future, based on critical understanding and with the purpose of engendering a rediscovery of our music as a significant instrument, in shaping and 'developing the sensitivities of our people in the twenty first century.

Outcomes

This will lead to a qualitative growth and development of the emotional/mental world of our people and also enable them to lay guidelines for performers/listeners of our new generation.
