Combined Bachelor of Arts
Combinatorial degree programs: These programs combine either a bachelor's subject with a second major subject, or a bachelor's subject with two minor subjects.
You can choose (almost) all the subjects offered by the three philosophical faculties. In addition, second majors and minors can be chosen in business administration, economics, business information systems (only as a second major), and it may be possible to apply for a second major or minor in further subjects.
Subject are put together in the following combinations:
The focus of research and teaching is on "historical musicology". Accordingly, the bachelor's program will focus on basic knowledge on how to deal with "classical" music and musical sources. The aim of the Master's degree is to intensify knowledge and skills, especially in handling source material.
Fields of work include archives, libraries, museums of cultural history, cultural departments in public administration, music schools and adult education, publishing companies and newspapers, theaters (esp. as dramaturge), concert agencies, music festivals, the film and record industry, television and radio stations. In addition to that, a master's degree may open the path to a career in academia. Several key skills can be acquired during the course of studies, such as language skills, skills in creative and scientific writing, competence in handling software for text and music processing, communication and audiovisual presentation.
When taken as a first major, a four-week internship is an obligatory component of the program. If arranged with the module supervisor, this can be replaced with the same scope of contribution to a project, observations, or volunteering (outside the university).
The length of the program depends on the progress of an individual's studies. The standard period of study, the time in which the intended program can be finished ideally is 6 semesters. The actual time taken to complete the program may vary. It is limited by the examination deadlines set out in the examination regulations.
