Bachelor of Music / Bachelor of Creative Industries

Western Sydney University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00917K

Music graduates who previously would have planned to pursue contracts with one or more large record companies or orchestras now have a future where they will be able to self-publish their work to the world, or they may require a more entrepreneurial approach than that previously required of a musician or music technologist. This double degree brings together the existing Music program with emerging creative industries and allows students who are interested in pursuing careers in music to also engage with new paradigms of creative and cultural production, developing skills in entrepreneurship and working in collaborative projects with creative industries in Western Sydney.
