At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Education and Music provide a great combined degree if you are interested in creativity, music, learning and the links between them. This combination of degree subjects would be the ideal choice if you are interested in pursuing a career in teaching involving music. You will study educational topics such as the nature of learning, childhood development, as well as the history of education and changes to educational policies and practices. You will investigate music in a wide range of contexts and as well as focusing on the creation and performance of music, you’ll examine its meaning and uses in a diversity of styles, periods and traditions, through topics including history, aesthetics, and the social impact of music. You can also take a work placement module studying music in the community. Music at Keele is a hub of world-class musicologists, composers and performers, and the musical life on campus is rich and varied. Studying this combined course will provide you with the perfect set of tools to address the neglected area of creativity in education today. Graduates who have studied Education and Music have entered a wide variety of careers including local government, media and communications, sales and marketing, banking, and the legal profession. You could follow a career in arts administration, orchestras, bands, a recording company, publishing, game design, film, radio or television. You can also choose to go on to postgraduate study.
