The degree program provides the student with versatile skills in music and the ability and qualification to use their expertise in a wide range of tasks as performers, music educators and experts. According to their professional orientation, the student can focus on a subject that is artistic, pedagogic or combining these two areas of expertise.

Even if the program is regarded as full-time studying, it is realized in a way that makes it possible to combine and integrate studies with work. The program is intended for experienced professionals, that have found a need to cultivate their own expertise, the professional field in general and maybe also their work community. Ideas that spring out of these needs form the basis of the final thesis (30 credits). The advanced professional studies (18 credits) aim to give the student abilities to act in different development tasks and understand factors behind work community behaviour. These studies form also a common platform for professional reflection and development. The elective studies (12 credits) promote the students professional profile and the working process of the final thesis.
