Musicology Honours A - MCGY4611

Musicology Honours is both a completion at a high standard of undergraduate education in musicology, and a preparation for postgraduate study in musicology. Intending Honours students are encouraged to use their third-year Free Choice units to study a language which may be relevant to their proposed Honours research area. Students should consult the unit coordinator before applying. The Honours student prepares a dissertation on a topic normally negotiated by the end of the previous year in the course of MCGY3606 Musicology 6 and outlined in a written proposal. Following submission of the dissertation the student presents a spoken paper on the dissertation topic and is expected to respond to questions posed from the floor by examiners and audience members. Other Musicology Honours requirements are attendance and participation in the Dissertation Seminar during the first semester; attendance and participation at Musicology Workshop during both semesters; and a further 12 credit points of approved units of study. With the permission of the unit coordinator, the approved units of study may be taken in the Faculty of Arts. Ongoing study of a language relevant to the student's research is particularly encouraged. Musicology Honours students should aspire to a standard of research suited to publication in a national refereed musicological journal.
