CMPN4610: Composition Honours A

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.
