Music students majoring in music history focus on the social, ethnic and historical forces that shape and change music; at the undergraduate level theory and history may be offered as one program. They may take courses in performance, composition, orchestration, musical structures, analysis, criticism, and the business of music; to round out their degrees, they take electives in the liberal arts and sciences, or in other fine arts. Students may specialize in the musical history of a particular era or region (such as jazz or African), although at the undergraduate level such specialization may not be required. It is recommended that those intending to go on to graduate study also take courses in a second language such as German or Italian.
