Music with Journalism
This program is designed to train musicians in a mixture of academic, creative and practical skills, to instil broad and specialist knowledge and understanding of musical repertories, and to develop students as independent critical thinkers. This program allows students to study Journalism as a minor subject, thereby enhancing their intellectual breadth and skills base. Employment prospects are excellent, with a wide range of career options available. Many graduates choose to become music teachers, at all educational levels, others take up administrative posts with orchestras, opera houses, or arts centres. Music graduates are always needed in the media and recording companies, as technicians, producers, program-planners, and writers. Other possible career paths include specialist music journalism, music publishing, music librarianship, and arts marketing. Several graduates have gone on to become distinguished academics, composers or performers.
