Course info

UCAS CODE LW93
Music can be studied at SOAS in either of two BA degree structures: the single-subject (“single honours”) BA in Music, or the two-subject (“joint honours”) BA in Music and another subject. The two-subject degree 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.
