This guide provides relevant links and information for students in Music 333.

Final Paper

This guide is intended to serve as a resource for students in Music 333: Western and World Music as they complete their final project.

The final assignment in our course is meant to empower you to design a project of your own, related to our course. Both the topic and design of the project are at your own discretion.

Examples include:

  • A reflection paper on a particular topic; such as music-making or experiencing music during the COVID-19 pandemic, US election year, #blacklivesmatter movement, or your own reflection on the course or one of its topics, among others.
  • A creative piece (poem, visual art, music, dance, or other piece) with accompanying prose. In the case of a music performance, this could be the playing of another piece, or a composition of your own. The accompanying prose would be a statement that explains the logic of your piece, as it pertains to our course.
  • An analysis of a piece of multimedia (perhaps a livestreamed concert, podcast episode, or visual art).
  • An analysis of a (or a few) popular articles. Academic articles or book chapters are great too.
  • An annotated bibliography on a particular topic.
  • Many, many other formats.
