The Arts Music Unit at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music provides study opportunities in music as part of an arts degree or a combined degree (such as arts/commerce, arts/law and arts/science). Courses are designed both for students who intend to make music their profession and for those who will pursue other careers. Available to students from all faculties, the courses cover a broad range of studies of music – in society, in culture and in performance. We welcome students from all musical backgrounds, including those with no prior musical experience.
Based at the University of Sydney’s Camperdown Campus in the Seymour Centre and the Old Darlington School, the Arts Music Unit offers courses and subjects ranging from general studies of the language of music to performance, composition and musicology. Students can major in music (at pass or honours level) as part of a Bachelor of Arts degree or any combined arts degree.
