Descripción

This programme is a unique opportunity to study the musical traditions of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and their global diasporas. Students are taught the basic principles of ethnomusicology and survey a variety of Asian and African musics. In years 2 and 3 they are encouraged to focus on the music of specific regions and to consider cross regional themes. Performance is a central component of the degree. Students have the opportunity to develop expertise in a great variety of musical performance traditions.

SOAS has the only Music department in the UK devoted to the study of world music. We have a very active musical life, including concert series, student ensembles and a successful summer school in which students can become involved. Students are taught in the heart of London, home to many vibrant and diverse communities and to a breath taking array of world music concerts, workshops and festivals. Our students actively participate in this rich and varied musical scene.

Graduates of the BA Music possess not only musical and cultural expertise, but also a portfolio of widely transferable skills sought by employers in professional and creative industries. The programme leads into careers and vocational pathways including arts management, festival administration and curating, music journalism, teaching, performing and composing, album production, and management and consultancy within the music industry in Europe, Asia and Africa.

BA Music can also be studied as part of a two subject degree. This option allows more scope for studying language or other non musical aspects of particular cultures. The single subject degree allows greater concentration on music, including Western music and Performance.

Programa académico

First year courses cover the basic principles of ethnomusicology and survey a variety of Asian and African musics. Students additionally receive aural training (e.g. in transcription) and follow lessons in one or more Asian or African performance traditions. The Department is linked with nearby King’s College, University of London. Qualified SOAS students may take one or two half units in Western music at King’s, and King’s students may take courses in ethnomusicology at SOAS, subject to approval from the appropriate tutors. In Years 2 and 3, the student is encouraged to focus on the music of a selected region or regions through “area” courses focussing on Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and the Jewish world. A number of non regional “thematic” courses and independent research projects are also available. Courses in other departments (“open options”) may be taken as appropriate, once the Music requirements have been met. Degree Detail Students are required to take courses to the total value of 12 units over the duration of their degree, or 4 units per year. A full unit course will be taught over both terms, while a half unit is a course taught over one term. Up to 3 units may come from "open option courses" (courses outside of this programme e.g. language or non music courses), but only one unit of open option courses may be taken in each year. SOAS Music undergraduates may take selected Western music courses at King's College, with the approval of the course tutor, as open option courses. Many King's courses are taught during one term only, and term and exam dates may differ from SOAS. In particular, some exams are held in January. Year 1: Single subject students take the 6 compulsory 15 credit courses (90 credits in total) in the "Compulsory Courses" listing below. Their remaining 30 credits may be an "open option" course or a music course at King's College London. Year 2: Single subject students take the compulsory 15 credit course Ethnomusicology Themes & Variations. They must also take one unit chosen from the "Area Courses" list. Remaining units can be selected from any of the course groups, with up to one unit from an open option course, or music courses at Kings College London. Year 3: Single subject students take the compulsory 15 credit course Urban Soundscapes. They must also take one unit chosen from the "Area Courses" list below. Remaining units can be selected from any of the course groups, with up to one unit from an open option course, or music courses at Kings College London.
