UArts four-year Music Composition degree program will help you develop discipline and focus through private lessons with our faculty who work professionally in contemporary classical, jazz, and commercial (radio, TV, film, industrial) and pop idioms. Monthly workshops featuring guest composers representing a variety of musical genres present you with an inside look at their creative processes and techniques. Music Composition majors also get a comprehensive Liberal Arts education. For students who want to study Music Composition, but already have a degree in a field other than music, UArts offers a four-year intensive Diploma in Composition.The music you create while earning your bachelor's degree in Composition will be read or performed by our ensembles, and frequent performances of your compositions will highlight the School of Music's concert schedule. The Universitys creative environment encourages your collaboration with film, animation, dance, theater, and multimedia students. You can even collaborate with ProJazz in Santiago, Chile or the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in the U.K.
