Pursue your creative endeavours – whether that’s as a performer on stage or in the studio, a radio broadcast, a songwriter, a music technologist, or an events organiser promoting gigs in the region.
To thrive in today’s fast-moving music culture, you’ll need a wide range of musical and technical skills, and to be able to work confidently with others across a range of professional contexts.
Your practical work will culminate in a large-scale project that will be a stepping stone into your chosen career.
You'll study a range of technical skills to enable you to realise your best work. Core skills might include: project management, rehearsal techniques, music theory and lyric analysis, fluency with key pieces of music software, research skills, social media skills for promoting your work, and festival programming.
You'll receive robust training in the critical and contextual dimensions of the study of music, working with expert staff to explore, interrogate and challenge received wisdom about the value, status and significance of music in our society.
BA Music (Popular Music) is a variant of the BA Music programme. This means that you will share the same modules as other BA Music students, although when there is optionality in each module, your assessments, and specialist cluster groups, will focus on Popular Music.
