Broadening your  

degree with music


What  are  
broadening units  and  what  options  are  

An exciting feature of UWAs new courses is the introduction of broadening units. These units are

a requirement of all undergraduate degrees and will provide you with knowledge beyond the fields in which you choose to specialise.

The School of Music offers a

number of stimulating and enjoyable broadening units that will accrue credit towards your degree. Whether or not you have studied music at secondary level, or can read music, you can enrich your degree by including music units in your course of study.
Types of broadening units You will be required to take four broadening units from outside your degree area, including at least

one with a global or cultural focus, known as a Category A unit. The remaining three units can be taken from Category A and/or Category B. Category B comprises an extensive range of electives from any discipline outside your degree (subject to

meeting unit prerequisites).
