Overview

This is a double degree program consisting of a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music. This qualification enables students to pursue a broad range of interests in music and the arts in a self-designed, integrated academic program spanning 5 years. In the Bachelor of Arts, the study of foreign languages is of particular significance to vocalists, while history or anthropology may be of particular interest to an ethnomusicologist. Consult the separate entries for the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Music degrees to obtain full details. Students in the first year of the program focus on music courses, majoring in Classical Voice, Music Composition, Music Education and Pedagogy, Music Performance - Classical, Music Performance - Jazz, Musicology, Popular Music and Creative Technologies, or Sonic Arts. The remaining four years combine courses from the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music programs.
All applicants must attend and pass an audition / interview and a musicianship test (except Musicology applicants, who will be required to sit the musicianship test only). Applicants may audition for more than one instrument or major.
The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music double degree is an AQF Level 7 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.
