  • Objectives
    The BA in Music and Korean Studies is a Dual Honours four-year course, which allows you to combine the study of two subjects. Music: An extensive range of modules in level one allows you to define your own modular programme through levels two and three. You may wish to specialise at level three in composition, dissertation or performance. A personal tutor will work with you over three years to help you make the most of your studies and encourage you to excel. Lectures, seminars and group tutorials are reinforced by individual supervision or feedback. Most of the degree is assessed through projects, performances and coursework, giving you a chance to develop your own skills and interests in an independent and creative manner. The Performance module at level one is assessed by a short recital. The level three Instrumental or Vocal Recital is given in public. While following a recital track you are given tuition on your principal instrument. Korean Studies: Korean studies modules cover language acquisition and in years three and four, focus upon particular aspects of the history, culture and business life of Korea. The second year of the degree programme is spent abroad and is a great opportunity to expand both your language skills and your understanding of Korean society. This course is run by the Department of Music and the School of East Asian Studies.
