Overview

World music studies encompasses the study of any and all musical activity in the world: Western as well as ‘exotic’, popular as well as classical, amateur as well as professional.

The Traditional and World Music (Distance Learning) course at University of Sheffield allows you to specialise in an area of your choice, while providing the opportunity to study musical phenomena from a global perspective.

Key Features 

  • Some students take advantage of Sheffield’s position as a major hub of both English and ‘Celtic’ musical activity to pursue in-depth studies on traditional musics of the British Isles. Others enjoy the opportunity to develop new understanding of musical sounds, practices and cultures from elsewhere in the world.
  • In this course, ‘world music’ is interpreted quite literally as encompassing, in principle, the study of any and all musical activity in the world: Western as well as ‘exotic’, popular as well as classical, amateur as well as professional.
