Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 2. 1965.
Major changes will be made in the courses in music. The current MusB degree is to be replaced by two degrees, a three-year BMus degree and a fourth year BMus (Hons) degree.
The courses for both Bachelor's degrees provide for specialisation either in composition or in executant work.
The University will cease to award the Diploma in Music.
A new advanced course in musical composition is to be introduced, and this will lead to the award of the new degree of Master of Music. Normally a candidate for the degree must have qualified for admission to the degree of Bachelor of Music with Honours, but there is provision in the regulations for concurrent enrolment for both.
With the increase in the number of music units available for the BA degree, previously mentioned in this report, the University will be offering courses in music to cater for the needs of three categories of students with an interest respectively in music history, composition, and performance.
