Develop your skills in performance and composition, and your academic knowledge of music, while exploring the great events, extraordinary documents and remarkable people that have shaped our culture and society. You'll study past societies from the late Roman through to the modern period, focusing on political, social and cultural themes. You'll be engaged in real research from the beginning of your course, learning to exercise independent judgement, to be critical of accepted opinion and to construct effective arguments. Our music curriculum and expertise span seven different areas: performance, composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology, musical industries, and music technology. We offer an impressive array of modules, with academic and practical study in most music genres, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music. You'll develop your skills as a musician and music researcher, and have the freedom to follow your own interests. As a dual honours student, you'll divide your studies between the Department of History and the Department of Music. You'll be required to take a minimum number of credits within both departments each year, but how you choose to divide your modules after this is up to you: split your modules evenly between history and music or choose to weight your degree in favour of one subject or the other. Throughout your degree, you'll be studying in an environment dedicated to high-quality teaching, world-leading research, and innovative public engagement. We have cutting-edge facilities, including purpose-built music practice rooms, recording studios and music psychology labs. Outside of your degree, there are many ways to develop your interests, insights and critical faculties. Opportunities include student-led reading groups, multiple ensembles, active student societies, and our University Concerts series, which hosts over 100 musical events and performances every year. The University of Sheffield is an All-Steinway School. This accreditation enables students to access pianos of the highest quality and places the University among a select group of international education institutions.
