Broaden your career prospects by studying Music and Media together.
This double degree will not only give you a specialist qualification in music, but also theoretical and practical skills in professional communications and journalism.
Music courses provide training in one of four streams: music creative practice, musicology, sonic arts and music pedagogy.
All streams are supported by a variety of large and small, Western and non-Western music ensembles as well as extensive opportunities for developing musicianship.
The Communications & Journalism component develops broad professional communications skills, teaching you to become an effective storyteller across a range of media platforms.
You are not only trained as a writer but also encouraged to become an influential and strategic communicator, able to tackle complex issues.
