The four-year BA in Music programme offers a choice of four study streams: composition, pedagogy, performance, and research (selected at the end of Year 2). In the first two years of study, students take courses that provide the foundation for later specialization. In Year 3, students focus more on their selected stream, and in Year 4 complete capstone courses. In addition, students may choose electives on diverse topics, including electronic music, conducting, ensembles, and advanced acedemic courses in Western and Chinese music history, theory and analysis, and world musics.
Students are required to obtain at least 123 credit units for the award of BA in Music:
MUSC1000 plus two other faculty package courses
Major Courses (other than Faculty package)
