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.
