The Unit of Church Music was cre­at­ed togeth­er with the new unique Major of stud­ies – Church Music – in the aca­d­e­m­ic year of 2009/2010. The main goal of the Unit is to watch over the teach­ing process of char­ac­ter­is­tic major sub­jects to be car­ried out prop­er­ly, to pro­vide fac­tu­al super­vi­sion of the artis­tic activ­i­ty and to con­duct aca­d­e­m­ic research in church music per­for­mance and the­o­ry.

The Unit coor­di­nates and allows the can­di­dates to com­plete the artis­tic stage train­ing in organ play­ing (active par­tic­i­pa­tion in con­certs) and con­duct­ing (class inspec­tions, work with an ensem­ble, con­duct­ing a piece in pub­lic), as well as the music and litur­gy train­ing in: pre-con­cil­iar and post-con­cil­iar Mass in Latin, litur­gi­cal accom­pa­ni­ment (class inspec­tions, accom­pa­ni­ment to Mass replies and dia­logues, and songs, organ impro­vi­sa­tion as part of a litur­gy), prepa­ra­tion and orga­ni­za­tion of a cer­e­mo­ni­al litur­gy, Gre­go­ri­an Schola, ani­ma­tion of the singing of the gath­er­ing (can­tor) and per­form­ing the inter-les­son singing (psalter­ist). The form of the train­ing was accept­ed by the Coun­cil of the Depart­ment of Choir Con­duct­ing, Music Edu­ca­tion, Church Music, Rhyth­mics and Dance on its meet­ing of 17.01.2011. Dur­ing the same meet­ing an over­all form of diplo­ma, BA and MA exams was spec­i­fied.
