    What will I study?

    Overview

    The Bachelor of Music program is a three-year, full-time degree that offers pre-professional music training in the following areas of study: Music Performance, Composition, Musicology, Ethnomusicology, Jazz & Improvisation, and Interactive Composition.

    The specialisations develop technically advanced and experienced musicians through an immersive and practical curriculum with core studies, music electives and complementary Breadth subjects.

    The Interactive Composition specialisation is an intensive, collaborative program giving you the skills to create music and sound for a range of contemporary media contexts.

    This specialisation works closely with all other disciplines within the Faculty and across the University and focuses on commercially driven cross-art modes of composition – for events, film, television, animation, theatre, music theatre, dance, pop music, advertising, video gaming, online sites, installation art and sound design.
