In the next unit of study an FCM310 student will enrol in FCM320 Orchestral Instruments 3B, an FCM311 Keyboard 3A will enrol in FCM321 Keyboard 3B and so on.
  • Students wishing to complete the BMus component in the Musicology stream complete 4 units of FCM study (levels 100 and 200) and replace the level 300 FCM units with FCP302 Music Before 1700 and FCP301 Music Since 1950. NB: These are in addition to three additional FCH/FCP Music History units.
  • Within the BA component students must complete the requirements of a major in one discipline. A major is normally made up of sequential units in one discipline comprising 25% of Level 100 units plus 75% of Level 200/300 units (totalling a minimum of 100%) Please seek advice from a sub-dean in the discipline areas you wish to study.
  • Units studied outside the BA or BMus schedules will not count towards the combined degree

For further advice regarding the music components of the BA-BMus students should contact Mr Alistair Dobson or Ms Shan Deng
