In conjunction with the Music Department, we offer a specialized section of WRDS 150 to coordinate with first-year Bachelor of Music students’ schedule and address their particular interests. One objective of WRDS 150 is to introduce students to the scholarly practices of research and writing; students develop an understanding of differences between the forms of research and writing in various academic disciplines and how they intersect and complement one another. This specialized section of WRDS 150 will explore differences and intersections between scholarly and musical discourses. Most importantly, BMus students will engage with and produce knowledge that will strengthen their development as musicians and members of UBC’s scholarly community.


If you would like to see sample syllabi from recent WRDS 150 BIE classes, you can find them here.
