B.A. in Music
This program specialises in providing students with comprehensive, creatively focused music training in an online environment. Students build their creative music making skills in songwriting, composition, performance and music technology while developing a thorough knowledge of the historical, cultural and theoretical background of music genres via the study of musicology, ethnomusicology and popular music studies. Additionally, the program fosters advanced musical craft skills in aural and harmony. Throughout their degree students produce a creative and/or research portfolio to enable them to showcase their abilities as they transition into professional careers in the creative industries and education sectors. Graduates of the program are independent, skilled musicians who have established their own creative practices and research methodologies. On completion of the degree, pathways to further study include continuing on to honours and graduate research degrees or graduate degrees in education to pursue careers in primary and secondary music teaching.
Graduates who have successfully completed the Bachelor of Music may, on the recommendation of the head of school concerned, continue to an honours year. The honours program shall include advanced coursework and a dissertation.
