Course summary

This degree course allows you to perform, compose and write about music alongside developing high-level language skills and an understanding of different cultures. You’ll study either one or two modern foreign languages (choosing from French, German, Russian, Spanish, Dutch, Czech, Italian, Catalan, Luxembourgish or Portugese) and will combine the practicalities of learning those languages with modules that examine their history, literature and culture.* In your Music modules, you’ll study a diverse range of musical forms, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music, as well as optional modules in subjects such as music education, music technology and the music business. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your performance and composition skills.You will be learning from academics and practitioners who are experts in their field, in departments that are innovators in terms of their research and public engagement. We offer incredible opportunities for our students, both at home and abroad. In your third year, you will spend time studying or working overseas, immersing yourself in the culture of one of two countries and honing your language skills by living alongside native speakers. Closer to home, you will be able to lead music workshops in local schools though our student-led volunteering organisation Music in the City, or to get involved in our University Concerts series, which hosts over 100 performances every year. This degree will equip you for a variety of careers within an increasingly interconnected, multilingual and multicultural world. Our graduates are excellent communications, who are adaptable and culturally-aware as well as being talented and creative musicians. In addition to careers in international development, teaching, journalism, the charity sector, and translating and interpreting, our graduates have gone on to become composers, performers, music therapists and broadcasters.*If you choose to study just one language, you will choose from French, German, Spanish or Russian. Italian is available as a second language option only, and we do not offer a year abroad in Italy. Luxembourgish is available to study from second year.
