The degree programme of music is alive with the sound of singing and playing. We are an important part of the culture and arts scene in Oulu and train experts in classical music, pop and jazz. Students graduate as Music Educators and Musicians and can work in a variety of jobs requiring strong professional expertise: as teachers of a specific instrument, music theory teachers or musicians in bands and orchestras. We also train Church Musicians to work in Evangelical Lutheran parishes.
We are proud of our first-class facilities. Teaching is provided by professional teachers, and we are continuously involved in the development of teaching and take full advantage of new technology. Teaching training is arranged in cooperation with music schools in the region. We cooperate with Finnish and Nordic institutions of higher education, and all teachers of the degree programme are prepared to put special emphasis on student counselling.
We encourage our students to think international and adopt an entrepreneurial spirit, and also provide tools for that. Artistic productions by the unit and by the entire School provide unforgettable experiences and add a touch of practice to the studies.
