Students enrolled in BA Musikologie start by studying 5 focus areas (Schwerpunkte), of which "Music Psychology and Acoustics" is one. From the 4th semester, they choose 2 out of 5. In the MA, they focus on one.

"Music Psychology and Acoustics” is shared between SysMusGraz and the Department of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM), University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG). Students in this focus area acquire advanced empirical and theoretical research skills in different areas of systematic musicology. They also acquire transferable skills in language, computing, interdisciplinarity, and teamwork, which are useful for future careers in all areas.

For further detail, see Uni Graz Online and the Musikologie homepage.
