Digital Music and Media – Study Options

Undergraduate Audition Requirements

Are you interested in computer-based and interactive musical creativity. If you love writing music for online games and creating music for new media and technologies, this is the new degree for you. Our facilities include a number of computer labs featuring the latest in music technology.

Our new four-year Bachelor of Music produces broadly educated musicians who can apply their knowledge and skills in various music and arts-related contexts and professions. We also allow you to forge creative interdisciplinary links with other musicians at the Conservatorium, as well as with students and academics throughout the University of Sydney, enabling you to prepare for a variety of new careers.

The core units of study are in music skills, analysis, history and culture, performance and teaching music, and a final year project, but the course is structured to allow you the flexibility to pursue a course of study in a combination of musical and non-musical disciplines. You can choose from a wide range of music electives, or other units of study such as art, history or design from another University of Sydney faculty.

Experience the best of both worlds, with classes at both the Conservatorium and at the University’s  Camperdown Campus.
