Course summary

Music is an incredibly rich and diverse subject. It is a creative and aesthetic practice, a social and cultural phenomenon, and can be studied as a scientific object. Our BMus programme embraces this disciplinary breadth. Initially, you will develop your creative musicianship skills and acquire the tools to engage critically with a variety of musical repertoires and media. You will also study how music is shaped by, and shapes the social, cultural, historical, and political environments in which it is produced. You will also be introduced to the psychology of music and its potential therapeutic effects. The BMus programme is flexible and welcomes students from different backgrounds and musical experiences. It is designed so that you can tailor a pathway that bests suits your musical interests and strengths. Your pathway could focus on the cultural, sociological, and historical contexts of music. You could specialise in composition and/or performance. You could choose to focus your studies entirely on music or you could select up to a half of your courses in each of Years 1 and 2, and a third of your courses in Years 3 and 4 from subjects outside of music. Students taking performance receive an annual bursary for instrumental tuition.
