The Master in Church Music programme, Organ and Keyboard, aims to educate musicians that possess superior artistic, pedagogical and professional qualities. On completion of the programme, the student must possess advanced knowledge and skills in order to work within the various functions and engagements of a professional musician - either as a soloist, a member of an established ensemble, or as a church musician within the Church of Sweden or within other denominations. The student must also have developed such skills necessary for continued or in-depth studies that are to a great degree autonomous. Furthermore, on completion of the programme, the student must have acquired thorough entrepreneurial skills that increase his/her professional versatility in an ever-changing ecclesiastical and cultural life.
The programme of study offers three areas of specialisation:
* Organ and Keyboard
* Music and choir
* Arrangement and Composition.
The programme of study is two years in length. Students may have a number of teaching elements and projects in common with other students of church music or performance.
The academic year is divided into weeks of scheduled classes according to a schedule (24 weeks), project weeks and weeks of independent study as well as examination and assignment weeks.
