Broaden your career prospects by studying Music and Media together.
This double degree will give you not only a specialist qualification in music, but also fundamental skills in video and sound production, screenwriting, animation and game design.
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 Screen and Sound Production component emphasises both theoretical and practical studies.
It gives you foundational knowledge in film and media history and theory, as well as applied skills in video and sound production.

Double degree options
Dual Mode with Bachelor of Media (Screen and Sound Production)
Because both Dual 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 Screen and Sound Production 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.
NOTE: Students who select the Sonic Arts stream will take MDIA1005 Creative Sound Technologies (6 UOC) as part of their Screen & Sound Production core requirement, exempting them from MUSC2803 Creative Sound Technologies, which will be replaced by an approved GE course. The remaining 6 UOC is to be taken by replacing a Screen and Sound Production Prescribed Elective (6 UOC) with an approved GE course. This completes the 12 UOC GE requirement.
