Policy and System
Education and Training
In 1997, following the establishment of UPSI as a university, the Music and Arts Department was included within the Faculty of Social Science and Arts. After several years, a restructure of faculties occurred and, for the first time at UPSI, an independent faculty of music and arts was created. Further refinement and growth led, in 2010, to the present form of the faculty as the Faculty of Music and Performing Arts.
This faculty offers a growing range of programs and degrees in music, theater, and dance. These highly regarded degrees are offered at diploma, bachelor, masters, and doctoral levels. The Faculty of Music and Performing Arts cherishes the diversity of local and global musical and performing arts traditions. It has world renowned and specialist teachers and researchers in a wide range of music and performing arts styles to meet the needs and expectations of professionals working in the current global market.
Our courses encompass the rich and diverse range of Malaysian ethnic music, both traditional and contemporary, in addition to our performing arts traditions. We are equally proud of the wide scope of courses in Western art, world and popular music in addition to courses in contemporary theater and dance.
The Faculty of Music and Performing Arts is proud of the conducive learning environment that provides students with optimum opportunity for professional and artistic development. Its academic staff comprises expert local and international academic staff from Indonesia, Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. As an international faculty, the skills provided will prepare students for the global music and performing arts industry.
The faculty is very proud of Malaysian culture. Subjects offered include gamelan, caklempong, kompang, traditional dance, and Malaysian music. The faculty offers comprehensive courses in Western music performance and pedagogy. Students also have the opportunity to study oriental music, Indian music, jazz and popular music.
