Music

A Bachelor's degree is a degree awarded by universities and colleges. In order to earn a bachelor's degree, you must complete the necessary courses that may last three to seven years depending on your institution of enrollment.

For students looking to further their academic or technical pursuits in music, there are music studies that emphasize both the theoretical and performative aspects of the field. Music is an interdisciplinary field, focusing on areas ranging from history and theory to composition to performance.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.
