Course Content

Music Sociology; It is a special sociology field that works in areas where general sociology and other (private) sociology and music sciences and music art overlap. For this reason, a sociologist of music has to work in the common fields of both sociology and music art and musical sciences. However, music sociology also has its own unique issues, problems and research efforts related to these problems. Initially, the approach from sociology to music can make reading easier by considering common concepts.
