Church Music Master
In addition to the Bachelor's degree, the Master's degree in church music represents a further professional qualification. With the degree, graduates fulfil the ecclesiastical employment requirements for service as cantors and organists in so-called A positions or comparable positions.
Diversity determines the professional field
The acquisition of a Master's degree qualifies church musicians in a special way for outstanding artistic and theoretical-scientific achievements in the fields of church music work. They are also in a position to take over the professional supervision and, if necessary, also the supervision of church music in a church region with offers for the training and further education of full-time and part-time church musicians, to advise church committees in professional matters and to represent church music in public.
