Programme Description

The study programme covers music theory as part of artistic, scientific, and pedagogical traditions, with emphasis on practical skills and musical reflection. The student will be introduced to subjects such as music theory in the classical Western style from the Middle Ages until today, and perspectives from jazz and folk music. At the core of this programme are analytical skills, characteristic not only to the course of analysis, but for all the other music theory subjects in the study programme.

This study prepares the student for PhD studies and/or a pedagogical career in music theory. In combination with practical teacher training (PPU) this programme will suit those who wish to teach music theory in upper secondary schools (high schools), municipal music schools or other teaching arenas that requires a PPU. Teaching at higher educational institutions and/or universities normally requires a doctoral degree (PhD).

The master’s project and the elective courses will facilitate a variety of specialisations within music theory, i.e. ear training, harmonic theory, and arranging, allowing the student to design a profile related to their areas of interest. The specialisations can thus reflect the inclination towards specific areas of interest relating to teaching  at high schools or to a research career in music theory.

Admission requirements

A Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 120 ECTS credits in music or 90 ECTS credits in musicology. Good knowledge of music theoretical subjects is expected, especially within the chosen specialisation in the master’s project.

Admission exams are held in aural skills, harmony, arranging, and counterpoint. Two arrangements or compositions must be enclosed in the application as scores, or by means of a recording.
