About this course

  • Musicology asks why we like music, how it functions and what it means. It examines not only music but also music-making within its social and cultural environment. Ethnomusicology seeks to understand how and why current music-making in a global context is meaningful to its makers, owners and communities. 
  • During your studies, you will develop knowledge, skills and practices that provide a basis for independent critical enquiry and research-based writing, as well as the ability and self-confidence to comprehend and present complex concepts.
  • The Musicology/Ethnomusicology specialisation offers you a highly flexible course structure, with opportunities to blend academic and performance-based activities through participation in ensemble and chamber-music activities.
  • It can also also offer a pathway to specialised study at honours or graduate level.

Careers:

This specialisation can be your pathway to a range of employment options within a musical portfolio career, including:

  • Music administrator
  • Music critic or reviewer
  • Music editor
  • Music educator
  • Music journalist
  • Music researcher
  • Social and cultural policy consultant.
