In Arts you can draw flexibly from a rich repertoire of 40 majors and minors. You may like to concentrate on the history, culture or language of the music you're playing, or add to your career flexibility with music through theatre, performance, film or journalism.

Arts is built around deeply enriching experiences, and via your elective units, offers you four Signature elements through which to develop your unique graduate profile: Global immersion, Intercultural expertise, Professional experience or Innovation capability.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Bachelor of Music

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Music) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

As a graduate with a degree in Arts and another in Music you could pursue a career in the arts sector, performance, music instruction or composing, or in interdisciplinary roles, such as production, arts management, policy or coaching.
