Definition of the field of studies

Music and Dance Science covers theoretical and practical dealing with music and dance; with the main emphasis being on research and reflexion of its aspects.


The bachelor programme is divided into three phases of two semesters each. The introductory phase serves as an orientation and teaches the basic knowledge required for all cultural studies. The advanced phase qualifies students to take part in seminars and is to help them to decide which areas they want to specialise in. In the final phase the chosen specialisation will be studied. Successful completion of this phase is the requirement for admission to the final examination, which takes place before a committee and at which a bachelor thesis, which must be written by the student, must be presented. Moreover, students are recommended explicitly to study abroad for a semester, preferably at a non-German-speaking university.
