Specific topics will then be studied in more depth, such as database design, website development, computer networks and software engineering. Popular Music: The Popular Music combined honours programme is designed to equip students with the appropriate academic knowledge and skills to enter the contemporary popular music industries. The programme is designed along three strands: 'Studying Popular Music', 'Playing Popular Music' and 'The Business of Popular Music'. Each of these strands is designed to interact, but also represent discrete opportunities for students to specialise in very specific areas.
