Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Music

Monash University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00008C

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.


Students complete specialist studies in music, music theory and ear training and music context studies as well as a major sequence in science over 4 years. Students will also be required to complete at least one mathematics or statistics unit and the core communication in science unit for the science component.
