Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Music

Monash University

Choosing between two areas that interest you can be hard, so this double degree course enables students to make the most of their talents and study both science and music. Whether their music specialisation is in composition, creative music technology, ethnomusicology and musicology, or performance, a broad understanding of science will illuminate and enrich the experience. And if students' main focus is science, music expertise will offer interesting opportunities not available to everyone - perhaps working on treatments for auditory conditions or mapping sound to interaction.
