Music and literature are vital elements of any culture or society. This Joint Honours degree gives you the chance to combine the two as you explore poetry, prose and drama in English alongside music in culture, in practice or in society. You’ll be introduced to the richness of English literature and have the chance to explore composition, the sciences of music or performance in your core studies. However, we offer an impressive variety of optional modules for you to choose from as well, so you can tailor your degree to focus on the topics that interest you. You could study analysis, aesthetics and criticism, music technology, editing or music psychology alongside Romantic poetry, medieval literature or world theatre. You could think about the politics of the language we use, or build your advanced performance skills. This course will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of two vital forms of human expression in a city with a vibrant cultural and musical life.
