MCS 251 - Faith, Music and Culture

(3) Helps students develop a Christian approach to the creation, marketing and consumption of contemporary music. Studies of theory, history and criticism: exploration of the concept of culture and the nature of popular culture; and examination of popular art and music in contemporary aesthetic, social, cultural and industrial contexts. Enrollment is limited to students admitted to the semester-long Contemporary Music Center program in Martha’s Vineyard.

Notes: In cooperation with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, courses under the MCS prefix are earned through a semester-long program of study at the Contemporary Music Center CMC on Martha’s Vineyard. This interdisciplinary off-campus study program provides a community for young musicians and aspiring music executives to plumb the depths of their creative souls and test the waters of a career in popular music. Designed as an artists’ community, the program seeks to develop artists and music executives with a Christ-centered vision for music content, production and delivery. The mission of the CMC is to prepare students academically and creatively for potential careers in the music industry.
