Changes to courses in 2012 will present exciting new opportunities for the study of music at UWA where we have been producing world-class graduates for more than 50 years.
In addition to current specialities, there will be greater flexibility to tailor programs to meet individual student needs and to combine music with other study areas.
These new degrees feature a simple, flexible course structure with a focus on developing communication, research and problem solving skills. Students will specialise in at least one area of study and also undertake some units outside their main study area.
All undergraduate students have the option of taking either one or two majors within their bachelor’s degree.
From 2012, all students will study broadening units as part of their course. This will enable students to perform in a wide range of musical ensembles and/or choirs, regardless of their chosen field of study.
To major in Specialist Music Studies students need to be enrolled in either a BA or a BPhil(Hons) and be concurrently enrolled in the Music Studies major.
