0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This course will explore the role of Music Therapy and Community Music in promoting the mental health and well being of disadvantaged, discriminated, stigmatized, and marginalized members of the community. It will further support anti-oppression frameworks that address various systems of domination (e.g. racism, ageism, sexism, heterosexism, classism). By addressing diversity and inclusion, and issues related to social justice, this course will prepare students for new initiatives in the changing face of music, health, culture and community.
