Course summary

Mathematics has often been considered an arts subject, with many studying it for the beauty of the subject. Likewise, although a very creative subject, music has many links to mathematics and can be studied as a scientific subject. On this joint honours programme, you will study elements of mathematics and music and explore the historical connection between these two disciplines. You will split your time evenly between the two subjects over the entire programme. **Areas of study** You will take compulsory mathematics courses, and study the theoretical and cultural aspects of music, such as: - listening and musicianship - music technology - composition Later in the programme, you can choose to: - specialise in particular aspects of mathematics - specialise in particular aspects of music - examine the links between the two subjects - study a broad range of topics across the two subjects **Music performance** Please note that studying music performance is not possible as part of this degree. However, we strongly encourage our students to pursue performance opportunities through the University's societies and ensembles.
