  • Rules and Conditions for the Creation of a Study Plan

    The study system is designed so that a total of at least 180 credits is achieved in the three years of studies. We set the system so that students can achieve a minimum of 30 credits per semester (60 credits for one year of study) through the composition of courses.

    The system is set up as follows:

    Compulsory and elective courses that include

    – profiling courses for musical arts, forming the backbone of all bachelor’s degree programmes at Faculty of Music JAMU;

    – profiling courses for the Percussion Instruments, Jazz Interpretation and Jazz Composition and Arrangement specialisations, which are the courses that form the knowledge and skills base of the final bachelor’s thesis and graduation performance and its documentation.

    The set of courses is designed so that the final number of credits for compulsory and elective courses of the programme is 97 (87 + 10), with credits awarded for compulsory courses of individual specialisations range from 75 to 77.

    The remaining number of credits is reserved for optional subjects, which are aimed at:

    (a) verification of knowledge and competencies in the form of practical projects;

    (b) acquisition of knowledge in the field of music art and language skills.
