About BA Music and German

This joint honours degree combines a full course in music with German, which can be studied from beginner level. It provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace. As well as following a structured German language course, you will study literature, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture.

Music offers a broad range of units in musicology, composition and performance, across diverse styles and genres. These are complemented by weekly concerts, regular masterclasses and performances in the department, and opportunities to get involved in the dynamic music scene in the city of Bristol.

You will spend your third year abroad in a German-speaking environment, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural knowledge.

Course structure

This joint degree provides a wide range of units that allows you to pursue your own interests in both fields. In your first year you will take 60 credits in each department and in years two and four you can specialise in one subject (80 credits in one and 40 in the other). In year one music harmony and analysis are compulsory; additionally you have a choice of composition, performance or another history unit.

Second and fourth years allow even more choice and your third year is spent abroad. You will have access to the School of Modern Languages' state-of-the-art multimedia centre.
