Courses at WaterBear

BA (Hons) and Master’s degrees 
for a life in music

All courses at WaterBear are designed in collaboration with our partners at Falmouth University. Course structure and content focuses on the development of specialist and transferable skills, and long-term career strategy. 

Our BA (Hons) degree courses all have music at their heart, whether it be performing, producing, creating, or business-focussed. The courses are built on 3 fundamental pillars – your music, your career and your music projects.  All study modules relate to one or more of those 3 areas. 

Our master’s courses have been designed for both music degree graduates and those with successful careers in the music industry.  Master’s level study focuses on a range of specialist areas, from music performance, to production, recording, business and professional project work.

All WaterBear courses are available to study on site, or fully online via distance learning. Blended learning options are also available on the MA programmes.
