welcome to the Department of Musicology at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana!
Our Department offers several courses in English and courses carried out through an e-classroom in English.

Courses in English

In the academic year 2021/2022 the following courses will be taught in English:

Department of Musicology offers the course Score playing 1 (3 ECTS) in English especially for exchange students. The course takes place in the autumn semester. Students learn how to play up to four-voice vocal scores, in which different clefs are used (G-, C-, F-clef). The course is taught by Asst. Prof. Dr. Katarina Bogunović Hočevar.

Some lectures from the ethnomusicology field are given bilingually in Slovene and English. Exchange students therefore frequently choose ethnomusicological courses.

In the winter semester ethnomusicological courses Musics of the World: Anthropology of Music (4 ECTS) and Applied ethnomusicology (5 ECTS) will be taught in English by Prof. Dr. Svanibor Pettan. In the course Musics of the World: Anthropogy of Music students learn about the anthropological approach to music practices of the world and about diverse musical practices in various contexts – from village parties to symphonic concerts to Eurosong. In the course Applied ethnomusicology students learn about the history of applied ethnomusicology, its methods and techniques world-wide.

In the spring semester the course Ethnomusicology 3 (5 ECTS) will be taught in English by Prof. Dr. Svanibor Pettan. In this course students get insight into the relevant written, sound and audiovisual sources, and learn how to independently manage a characteristic ethnomusicological research assignment in terms of theory and method.
