About English and Music at University of Sheffield

This dual honours English and music degree allows you to pursue your creative and critical passions across the arts.

Through English, you'll foster your love of literature, film, theatre, creative writing and more. You'll explore literary cultures from the medieval to the present day, engaging with diverse texts and media from all over the world. You can pursue either an English literature or an English language pathway, or take modules from both areas.

The music side of your degree is carefully designed to develop your skills as a musician and music researcher. We offer academic and practical study in most music genres, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music. Our curriculum is spread across seven different areas - performance, composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology, musical industries and music technology.

As a dual honours student, you'll divide your studies between the School of English and the Department of Music. Choice and flexibility are at the heart of our teaching, which means you can pursue and develop your own interests. At every level, there is a wide variety of modules to choose from. You will be taught by world-leading experts from both departments.

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 English 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 theatre and performance societies, and our University Concerts series, which hosts over 100 musical events and performances every year.
