Description

Studying both history and music will give you a firm grasp of both subjects.

The music course structure is highly flexible. You'll learn key skills and have the freedom to pursue your own interests. Our rigorous curriculum is exceptionally diverse. It covers psychological and anthropological approaches to the study of music, as well as performance, composition and musicology.

We offer academic and practical study in most music genres, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music. Our teaching is hands-on: it combines both theory and practice.

There are lectures, seminars with interactive classes and tutorials. You'll be expected to carry out independent study, assignments and instrument practice. Typically, if you are on the performance pathways, you'll receive 18 hours a year of individual tuition from our team of expert instrumental and vocal tutors.

History modules cover past societies from the ancient through to the modern period, and explore political, social and cultural themes. We keep our seminar groups small because we want to make sure everyone takes part in the discussion.

The history curriculum is designed to involve you in real research right from the start. In the first year (for the compulsory history workshop module) you'll work alongside an academic on a research project. You'll learn the principles of rigorous research, to exercise independent judgement, be critical of accepted opinion and to present your arguments effectively.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.

In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
