Singing the praises of psychology and music

“One of the most fascinating crossovers I encountered in my double major of music and psychology was a class on infancy, and a class on the metaphysics of music,” says Nate Kaplan, who graduated in May from Emory. “The infancy class is getting at the primary building blocks that make us human. The metaphysics of music class is breaking down music into its primary building blocks. Why do we think of music the way we do? Why does it affect us the way it does? And that’s a huge part of the human experience.”
