University of Newcastle
This combined degree program provides the opportunity for study in both music and arts. Students complete two degree awards over four years of full time study (or part time equivalent).
The flexibility of this combined degree allows students to pursue those areas that present the best challenges, the most interest and the greatest enjoyment while studying. Students will have the opportunity to acquire the skills of analysis, research and logic: the skills which form the basis for any successful career as well as acquiring specialised skills in music and preparing students for performance to a professional standard.
