The Bachelor's Composition programme is aimed at those who want to become composers with a focus on Western contemporary art music, with the goal that you will find your own personal aesthetics in your composing and develop a good artistic and professional ability.

During the first two years of study, you work with compositions for different chamber ensembles, while the third year involves composition work for larger ensembles such as chamber and wind orchestra as part of the composition education's external project collaborations. The education also gives you a solid craft foundation in the parameters of music as well as traditional music theory in subject areas such as harmonization, four-part movement, morphology, analysis, notation and musicology. During your studies, you meet professional institutions and ensembles, which places great demands on work discipline and responsibility.

After completing the education, you must be prepared to, with advanced knowledge and skills, be able to work creatively in your own professional role in a working and cultural life in constant change and development. The composition education gives you the skills required to study in the master's program with a high degree of independence. Teaching is given in composition, electroacoustic music, instrumentation, hearing / analysis, counterpoint, piano / hearing playing, music and society, ensemble management with conducting and music as a profession in the form of individual lessons, group lessons and seminars. Projects and degree projects are included.
