This is one of several specialist routes available in our #BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities[R14]#. The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects - including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy and religious studies. You'll then take at least two specialist music modules. Following on from exploring the materials of music and employing them in song writing, you can choose to study further music modules. One investigates how music relates to social contexts, historically and in the present day, and one focuses on developing practical musical skills and collaborative music-making through sustained critical reflection. You'll work with a wide range of musical styles and develop skills in analysing, creating and writing about music.Alongside your study of music, you can choose to study a second specialism from the subjects listed above. This will entitle you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options. This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
- Knowledge and understanding
- Cognitive skills
- Practical and professional skills
- Key skills
The level and depth of your learning gradually increases as you work through the qualification. You'll be supported throughout by the OU's unique style of teaching and assessment - which includes a personal tutor to guide and comment on your work; top quality course texts; e-learning resources like podcasts, interactive media and online materials; tutorial groups and community forums.
