Program Overview

Broaden your career prospects by studying Music and Arts together. This double degree gives you a specialist qualification in music as well as the flexibility to pursue other interests within the humanities and social sciences, including languages, arts, history, philosophy and business.

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.

In whichever other area you choose to study for the Arts component, you will develop transferable skills and in-depth knowledge, and gain the tools to think critically, communicate effectively and conduct independent research.
