Passionate about Music and Science? Then this is the degree for you.
The Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Science (Advanced) dual degree program enables you to complete a major in Advanced Science while studying for a specialist music program that offers intensive pre-professional training in one of four streams: Music Creative Practice, Music Inquiry, 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 skills.
The Advanced Science program is designed to challenge you with an interest in critical thinking, research and innovation. The development of depth of understanding and practical skills in a discipline is a key part of the program; however, the degree also focuses on instilling a culture of research and enquiry through early induction into the research ethos and access to research groups and facilities. In their final year students undertake an Honours program, which involves a supervised research project and in some cases advanced level coursework.
At the completion of the degree, you will have expertise in at least one of the sub-disciplines of Music, a high level of practical skills in music cognition, analysis and performance, and high level graduate skills in gathering, synthesising, criticising, and presenting ideas and information. A combination of music with other disciplines or degrees will qualify graduates for a diverse array of other occupations in the public and private sector where interdisciplinary skills are sought after.
Applicants must complete an audition to gain entry to the Bachelor of Music program.
Applicants are expected to have reached the level of at least Grade 7 AMEB Performance (or equivalent) and 2 Unit Music course 2 or 3 Unit Extension or Grade 6 AMEB Musicianship (or equivalent).
