About this course

Graduates from the B.A. Musicology course will have acquired sound basic knowledge of the history of music in Europe and European-influenced cultures from antiquity to the present.

On this foundation, graduates will be able to make use of their knowledge of music theory and analysis, notation and the history of composition for the analysis of central features in musical works.

During the course they will have learned to use musicological works of reference and databases to an extent enabling them to engage responsibly and gender-competently with music-historical phenomena, both individually and in teams.

Graduates can read and understand scholarly texts in English and in one other self-chosen modern foreign language. They are able to engage with musicological topics successfully within a reasonable amount of time, identify relevant issues and present their findings competently both orally and in writing with recourse to technical media in their latest updated versions.
