Generally, the music curriculum must deal with: (1) training in the making of music; (2) musical "objects"; and (3) the study of music in the larger context. Part 1 reviews the: (1) current undergraduate music curriculum; (2) undergraduate music environment; (3) undergraduate music curriculum and its academic contexts; and (4) a determination of the content of undergraduate music courses. Part 2 presents a survey of national practices, including data from questionnaires circulated to institutions identifying themselves as having music teaching responsibility in general students courses. Charts included in the report present information on the following topics: issues in music, major problems, course requirements for non-majors, performance opportunities, and music history courses.
