Studying an undergraduate programme

The Department of Music is one of largest in the country, and our flexible curriculum offers an exceptionally diverse range of research-led courses and performance opportunities.

Aside from performance and composition, a music degree involves studying texts, practices, cultures, and institutions. It is a particularly rich and intellectually stimulating degree, and undergraduate music students touch on issues in history, sociology, ethnology, and philosophy, as well as the more specific areas of music history and theory.

The breadth of expertise in our department is reflected in the first-year undergraduate textbook An Introduction to Music Studies, written and edited by current and former members of our academic staff.
