Ethnomusicology

Ethnomusicology is the study of music's relationships to the social and cultural contexts in which it occurs, seeking to understand what music is, and the role it plays in human interactions and experiences. We boast one of the UK's largest ethnomusicology sections, and our staff's specialisms are unusually diverse, including: the music of Korea, folk music, dance and song of England and of the British Isles, and North Indian classical music. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
