Department of Musicology

Build your own degree

Apart from acquiring a degree by fulfilling a programme, e.g. the Bachelor Programme in musicology, you can also build your own degree by taking freestanding courses. Whichever path you choose, you will ultimately acquire a Bachelor degree, which consists of 180 ECTS credits, or the equivalent of three years' full-time study. At least 90 ECTS credits must be within a major field of study, and at least 30 ECTS credits within a minor. For more information about degrees and rules, see the university degrees pages.

If you have taken courses in musicology at other universities and want to include them in your bachelor degree, it is usually possible to do so. Please contact our student counselor for more information, or if you have any other questions - preferably by email studievagledare@musik.uu.se.
