Bachelor of Music (Honours)


The Music Department within the School of Performing Arts offers a vast programme of undergraduate courses, as well as research opportunities, composition and performance tuition at postgraduate level.  As an undergraduate or graduate student you can study composition, performance, historical musicology and ethnomusicology with a team of specialists in their respective fields. All this is delivered in a dynamic environment that encourages musical creativity and practice whilst, at the same time, providing ample opportunities for the interaction of these with a range of scholarly interests.  Apart from that, the Department supports ensembles open to students coming from other Faculties and Departments. These include the University Vocal Ensemble, the University String Ensemble and the University Wind Ensemble.

Our students are also encouraged to benefit from courses offered by the other Departments within the School. This helps students adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the study of music which in itself opens up more opportunities in terms of career.

A degree in music is the key to several job opportunities. These include jobs in teaching, the recording industry, professional orchestral playing, a freelance life as a professional composer or performer, cultural management and administration, and job opportunities in the entertainment sector and the media just to mention a few. In addition, a degree in music is sometimes considered as an asset by employers seeking formal evidence of professional training in creativity from prospective employees.
