The knowledge, skills and methods conveyed and learned in the programme allow graduates to independently take up and pursue their chosen occupation at the highest artistic level.

    Students attend three modules each semester and are obliged to choose an additional specialisation.

    The successful completion of the master's degree programme is contingent on completing modules worth a total of 120 credits.

    The profile module offers various aspects of professional profiling. Throughout the degree programme, the musical-artistic skills of the individual students of the chosen artistic focus are integrated into the core module of one's major and influence the choice of topic of the master's project/thesis.

    The student's acquired artistic abilities are reflected in the master's graduation concert.

    During the first year of study, students' artistic focus is deepened and supplemented and promotes their process of professionalisation.
