Music and Philosophy

Music at Sheffield gives you the freedom to explore new ideas, to develop as a musician, and learn the transferable skills that will help you turn your passion into a rewarding career. We teach music education, music technology, and music business, as well as purely academic subjects such as ethnomusicology. Sheffield is among the UK top ten for research in music (Research Excellence Framework 2014). Our teaching staff includes leading musicologists from around the world as well as experienced practitioners. This breadth of expertise means we can cover most genres. If you choose make performance part of your degree you will get expert tuition on your instrument. You will spend roughly half your time in the Department of Philosophy, where you have the freedom to design your own curriculum. There are no compulsory modules. But the department covers an unusually wide range of topics, including courses on major figures such as Aristotle, Descartes and Hegel.
