This course prepares students to enter the workforce by pursuing three tracks: 1) an examination of the history of music from the 20th and 21st centuries, 2) a pragmatic survey of vocational opportunities, and 3) a study of the principles of collaboration and leadership skills. By examining the landscape of 20th and 21st-century musical aesthetic and philosophical ideas, students can leverage these ideas to better understand their relationship to musical culture and thereby more clearly identify possibilities after graduation. A diverse array of guest presenters offers valuable real-world perspectives so students can see the vocational landscape more clearly. The study of collaboration through group work will allow students to develop skills that make them valuable contributors to organizations and institutions; moreover, this group work can foster the incubation of new projects that may extend to students' post-graduation careers. This course aims to help students define their roles and discover opportunities in the workplaces of the future.
