Advanced study options

You could consider an additional year of study and complete your Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree. An Honours degree provides graduates with a distinct advantage in a competitive workplace.  The Bachelor of Music (Honours) is also a pre-requisite for Masters and PhD study and it is a recognised enhancement of the Bachelor of Music in teaching and other professional situations.

The Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree is a one year full-time study degree involving completion of 80 units of music courses. The Honours degree is available in various music specialisations as approved by the program convenor. These include (but are not limited to):

  • performance
  • composition
  • music production
  • musicology

Any area you may choose will give you the opportunity to broaden your practical experience and develop research skills, plus the ability to articulate the research component in a practice-based research design. The scope for topics is very wide and embraces all styles of music. All specialisations are required to have a research focus.

The variety of creative and research work undertaken by our Honours students results in a diverse group with opportunity for rewarding interactions and collaboration. Access to staff expertise in a range of music specialisations and the chance to develop projects of your choice, make the Honours year an important stage in musical maturation and professional preparation.
