Overview

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 advanced skills and knowledge in public relations, media relations and organisational communications.

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 PR and Advertising component offers a philosophical and cultural foundation in the media-studies core, theoretical and practical skills in public relations and advertising, and access to free electives that provide a more general education.

For students completing the BMus in this Dual mode 6 UOC of Prescribed PR and Advertising Electives is replaced with an approved GE course to meet 6 UOC of the GE requirement. The other 6 UOC is to be taken by replacing MUSC3701 Performance Laboratory 5 with an approved GE course. This completes the 12 UOC GE requirement.
