Bachelor of Music (Honours)

  • Bachelor

The Bachelor of Music Honours is characterised by the concept of music—be it performance, composition, music technology, or musicology—as a research-led process that explores questions relevant to our understanding of what it means to be human and of who we are. The core of this program is a substantial piece of original research realised through either performance, composition, or a 20,000 word written document. A performance or composition will be explained verbally through a 5000-word exegesis that explores the creative act as a research process and explains the contribution to knowledge that the creative act makes.
