Bachelor of Fine Arts with a Major in Music Karlstad University



Course info


The Fine Arts/Music programme at Karlstad University is an artistic education designed for students who want to develop their technical and artistic musical skills to a very high level. With studies on main instrument, ensemble and musical knowledge the student acquires a solid foundation for a professional life as a musician in various musical constellations. The programme comprises 180 credits and leads to a Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts with a Major in Music. The studies are at the Ingesund school of music in Arvika. At the school we have symphony orchestras, string bands, choirs, symphonic brass band, jazz orchestra, and a variety of small ensembles.

The programme builds on three areas of study involving main instrument, ensemble and musical knowledge. In addition, studies include an optional course and a mandatory independent degree project. There is an emphasis on students' instrument playing skills, rehearsing and interpretation of solo and chamber music. There is also an emphasis on reflections on their own artistic process and development. Students also practice performing to an audience. Furthermore, there are studies of music theory and ear-training, music history in the Western music traditions, digital tools, functional piano training and conditions of the music sector.


The music cultural life in Sweden, as well as in other countries, needs professional artists who can work in orchestras, ensembles, as soloists as well with other music skills and cultural activities in general.


After the studies the student obtains a Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts with a Major in Music. The degree certificate shows the courses the student has studied.


The bachelor of fine, applied and performing arts prepares the students for further artistic studies at Master level. To be accepted for further education the student has to fulfill general admission requirements and satisfactory entrance tests.
