Main objective of the study programme is the critical reflection of music in a broad sense to obtain academic and cultural competence. Within the academic framework of historical and systematic musicology fundamental knowledge as well as a diversity of musical appearances and effects will be explored. Thus, music from different historical periods and sociocultural contexts, like serious and popular music genres, as well as (psycho-)acoustical, psychological, sociological, and aesthetic phenomenon of music production and reception are part of the curriculum.
The programme involves eleven compulsory modules with 72 CP in total. These include classes in music theory (9 CP) provided by and given at the Conservatory for the Arts (Hochschule für Künste). For the Bachelor thesis 12 CP are given. The additional area of specialization consists of the internship (9 CP) and the elective area (12 CP). The area of General studies amounts to another 27 CP.
General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.
Studies involve a compulsory work practical to be undertaken in the 5th semester.
