Composition Honours A - CMPN4610

Year - 2020

Composition Honours is both a completion at a high standard of an academic education in composition, and a preparation for postgraduate study in music. Honours requirements are: A dissertation and original portfolio, attendance at Research Methods intensive Welcome Week, attendance at the Dissertation seminar, and a further 12 credit points in approved units of study. Assessment is done in each semester for all units of study with results held over until completion of the honours programme. Submission on completion of the second semester is required of the portfolio of works (including recordings of as much of the portfolio and possible) and the thesis. Note: a mark is achieved for Advanced Analysis and Dissertation Seminar but it is only contingent on successful completion of these units for ratification of the final honours result.

Classes
Research Methods Intensive in Welcome Week, 2 hr Dissertation Seminar/week in semester 1, 12 hours supervision and 24 hours composition supervision across two semesters including composition seminar.

Assessment
The final honours mark consists of: Composition Portfolio (50%), an 8,000 to 10,000 word thesis including successful completion of Dissertation Seminar (30%); Advanced Analysis (10%); 12 credit points in approved units of study (20%).

Additional information
