About this course

Music is one of the most powerful and evocative of arts forms. The music major will help students to understand music's diverse social and historical meanings and well as providing them with a key to its written and aural complexities. The students will approach the study of Western art music in a challenging and engaging way, incorporating critical perspectives and historical knowledge along with written and aural skills. Students contemplating the extended major will have a choice of two streams: a musicological stream which further develops the aspects described above, and a professional stream designed for students interested in the professional field of Music Education.
