Entry Requirements

  • Bachelor's degree from the University of Bern with a major in Musicology
  • Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university with a major in Musicology
  • Bachelor of Arts in Musicology (major) or a similar degree from a recognized foreign university. Degrees from another university must be recognized as being equivalent to the Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Bern.
  • Bachelor's degree from a recognized foreign university with a major in a different branch of study, provided additional coursework for a maximum of 60 ECTS credits is completed as one of the requirements for successfully completing the Master program. All requirements must be met before a student can be admitted to the Master program. All additional requirements must be met in order to complete the Master program.
  • Bachelor's degree from the University of Bern with a minor in Musicology. Additional coursework / attainments (in subjects that complement the student's previous studies) for a total of 39 ECTS credits, as well as a scholarly Type B paper (6 ECTS credits). In this manner, the difference between the Bachelor major (without electives: 105 ECTS credits) and Bachelor minor (60 ECTS credits) is compensated for, as is the lack of a Musicology Bachelor thesis. These attainments can be completed during the Master program as a degree requirement. The ECTS credits earned are not applied to the Master program.
