Com­po­si­tion trains peo­ple who cre­ate works of music. The pur­pose of this course is to achieve com­pre­hen­sive knowl­edge and skills in com­pos­ing tech­nique, with par­tic­u­lar focus on con­tem­po­rary com­pos­ing tech­niques. The fol­low­ing pro­fes­sors teach com­po­si­tion class­es: Krzysztof Bac­ulews­ki, Zbig­niew Bag­ińs­ki, Marcin Błażewicz, Alek­sander Koś­ciów, Paweł Łukaszews­ki.

Sym­pho­ny and Opera Con­duct­ing Sym­phon­ic and oper­at­ic con­duct­ing trains con­duc­tors who con­duct sym­pho­ny orches­tras and opera the­atre orches­tras. The pur­pose of this course is to mas­ter per­for­mance (i.e., con­duct­ing) tech­nique and the basic sym­phon­ic, oper­at­ic and ora­to­rio reper­to­ry and also to devel­op one’s abil­i­ty to work with a musi­cal ensem­ble. The fol­low­ing pro­fes­sors teach con­duct­ing class­es: Tomasz BugajSzy­mon Kawal­la, Marek Pijarows­ki, Moni­ka Wolińs­ka.

The­o­ry of Music trains the­o­rists to do sci­en­tif­ic research and to teach the­o­ret­i­cal sub­jects. It also trains jour­nal­ists, lec­tur­ers and musi­cal event organ­is­ers and pre­pares stu­dents to work for the press, radio and tele­vi­sion.

From the Aca­d­e­m­ic Year 2012/2013 can­di­dates for the sec­ond degree stud­ies can apply for widen­ing their cho­sen Major with mul­ti­me­dia sub­jects, in a form of an indi­vid­ual plan of stud­ies, as part of the project called the Inter-Uni­ver­si­ty Mul­ti­me­dia Pro­gram (MSM) run by the Depart­ment of Sound Engi­neer­ing, which is a con­tin­u­a­tion of the project co-financed by the Oper­at­ing Pro­gramme “Human Cap­i­tal” as part of the Euro­pean Social Fund.
