Bachelor of Music (13K)

Course Structure

In the Bachelor of Music you need to choose 2 complementary majors, a linked minor and 4 student electives. See the Degree combinations below for the options available.

This degree consists of a total of 24 units comprising:
  • Two majors of 8 units each: each major consists of 2 introductory, 2 intermediate, 4 advanced units (normally 4 x 12.5% but in this degree 2 x 25% advanced level units may be taken). Note: a unit may be listed twice at advanced level on the structure below, as the unit is weighted at 25% and fulfils the equivalent of 2 standard 12.5% units towards the requirements of the degree. You only need to enrol in the unit once.
  • A minor of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units
  • Four student elective units: units which may be chosen from this or any other subject area within the University, provided they meet the unit level requirements for the degree (see next point below), unit pre-requisites and quotas. You may take individual units or study the equivalent of a second minor through your student electives and try out different subject areas – it’s your choice.
  • Unit level requirements for the degree are: between 8-10 units at introductory level, 6-10 units at intermediate level and 8-10 units at advanced level.
