About Music and Korean Studies at University of Sheffield

This degree allows you to perform, compose and write about music while developing your language skills and understanding of Korean culture.

We teach Korean from scratch, so you don't need previous experience. Our language course is intensive and towards your final year, you'll focus on more advanced and vocational skills in writing, summary, precision translation, debate and oral presentation.

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 receive a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required to become a successful musician or music researcher, and have the freedom to follow your own interests. You'll learn to listen, perform, think and write critically about music of multiple genres, delve into the histories and cultural contexts of both Western classical and world music, and have the chance to receive compositional training in both instrumental and music technology software.

In your third year, you will spend time studying in Seoul, South Korea at one of our six partner universities, experiencing the culture first hand and honing your language skills by living alongside native speakers.

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.

You'll graduate having a thorough understanding of the music industry in all its diverse contemporary forms, allowing you to forge an international and rewarding career that interests you.

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.
