Master of Music in Composition

In the Master's Degree Programme students further develop their talents and skills toward a personal artistic profile. They learn how to find their place in the professional field of contemporary music. During the programme they work on an artistic production which should convince the professional music world of their potential and personal artistic views. 

During their master's research they address questions which are relevant to the composition practice. They present their findings at the annual Research Symposium.

A broad range of electives help the students to explore fields which do not belong to the core subjects of the composition study, but which they may later, duting their careers, want to engage in. There are a number of sepcial electives for composers, such as 'Music Theatre and Stage Performance', 'Advanced Rhythm', 'Electronic Music' and 'Intercultural Music - 'The Other' as Inspiration'. Additionally, students may receive training in ensemble conducting.
