Joint honours programmes
Gain expertise in multiple subject areas
The music industry is a fast-moving, ever-shifting landscape. If you’re looking to make your mark in this competitive industry, you’ll need skills that reflect its dynamic nature. Creative professionals need to be multi-skilled, with a breadth of knowledge spanning more than one primary subject.
At BIMM Music Institute, we offer a range of joint honours options for your studies, giving you the chance to equip yourself with a diverse range of insights and experiences for your future career path.
Is joint honours for you?
Are you someone with a passion for the music industry but who doesn’t necessarily want to focus on just one subject area? Are you super keen to have a portfolio career? Are you interested in developing a wide range of skills so you can follow an entrepreneurial route or start your own business? If so, joint honours might be the right option for you.
Key benefits of a joint honours degree
Build a portfolio career
There aren’t many creatives these days who only have one skill. Most musicians and music industry professionals have garnered experience in different areas of the industry, enabling them to understand and work across the full spectrum of the creative working world.
Develop multiple streams of income
From this perspective, joint honours makes a lot of sense. The broad skillset and transferable skills you’ll develop will serve you well in building multiple sources of revenue. And that’s one good way of future-proofing your career.
Blend practical skills with business, industry and events skills
It stands to reason that every performer, producer or songwriter needs accompanying business, marketing and management skills. Why not kick start your knowledge acquisition whilst you have the relevant experts around to guide you.
