Music is ever-present in the modern world and affects people's lives
strongly in various ways. Many people spend a considerable amount of
time daily listening to music, or playing a musical instrument. Music
can affect and regulate our mood and emotions, and can be used as a

completed studio facilities, will be utilized on this programme. The
programme consists of 120 ECTS credits requiring two academic years of
full-time study. The language of instruction is English.
