The World Musics and Cultures Program at Union College is an interdisciplinary program offering courses, concerts and performance opportunities that explore, in a vibrant academic setting, the diversity of the world’s people and the music that we make. Grounded in the Departments of Music and Anthropology, students can take a range of courses that reveal the intersection of music and cultural anthropology, develop skills in ethnographic methods, and encounter specific styles through both hands-on performance and academic study of the musics and cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora, Asia (Central, East, South and South East), Europe, Latin America, and North America.
