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.

Double degree options
Dual Mode with Bachelor of Media (PR & Advertising)
Because both programs are internal to UNSW Arts and Social Sciences the General Education (GE) Exemption for Dual programs does not apply.
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.
