The Graduate Diploma in Music is a one-year program designed for university graduates in any field who wish to undertake graduate study in music.
To support the writing of your Graduate Diploma in Music (Ethnomusicology) dissertation, you will undertake the subject The Ethnography of Music, where seminars and discussions centre on key issues – both historical and current – in ethnomusicology. Topics include ethnographic representation, fieldwork methods, ethical issues in field research, and connecting musical analysis with cultural analysis. You will be assisted to become ‘experts’ in a case study in an area of interest to you. You also choose from a range of academic and non-Western ensemble elective subjects relevant to your area of research and interest.
Upon completion of the Graduate Diploma in Music you may be eligible to apply for masters by coursework or research in Music.
