Music and Philosophy - University of Sheffield

This course enables you to develop your musical abilities while learning about philosophical issues that have challenged thinkers for centuries. In your Music modules, you’ll study a diverse range of musical forms, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music, as well as optional modules in subjects such as music education, music technology and the music business. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your performance and composition skills. Through your Philosophy modules, you’ll explore key philosophical areas - ethics, philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge, political philosophy, metaphysics and logic - as well as major figures in the history of philosophy such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes and Hegel. You’ll also tackle real-world issues, examining topics like global justice, climate change and feminism through a philosophical lens. You will be learning from academics and practitioners who are experts in their field, in departments that are innovators in terms of their research and public engagement. As a Music and Philosophy student, you will have the opportunity to get involved with community projects like Philosophy in the City, which introduces school children to philosophical ideas they can apply to everyday life, and in Sheffield’s diverse and thriving local music scene, home to over 500 ensembles and the nationally-renowned Tramlines music festival. The academic aptitude and practical skills you will develop throughout your degree will give you a huge range of career options after university. As well as careers in teaching, law, social work, journalism, the civil service, and the charity sector, our graduates have gone on to become composers, performers, music therapists and broadcasters.
