What will I learn?

There is a deep historic affinity between the disciplines of Mathematics and Music. Both involve patterns and structures; and notions such as octaves, chords, scales, and keys are all based in mathematics.

Music at Birmingham has evolved throughout the past century to give you unparalleled facilities, opportunities and student experience - blending tradition with fearless exploration of contemporary developments. You will benefit from some of the best facilities for undergraduate music study and practice in the country, including our state-of-the-art Bramall Music Building and the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, with its magnificent Art Deco concert hall. This student experience is complemented by a diverse and eclectic array of music venues in the city of Birmingham, and music-making opportunities in abundance through our active Music Society, the university's largest and oldest society.

Meanwhile, your undergraduate Mathematics studies are carefully designed to give you access to as many topics as possible. You will develop skills such as the ability to formulate and tackle problems, to think logically, to use technical language and to express complex ideas clearly and accurately.

Employability

Our Mathematics and Music graduates have a range of skills that are highly prized by graduate employers. Over 90% of our students entered work or study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2017).

The study of musical performance and musicology develops analytical skills, lateral thinking and your creative imagination. The process of performing itself helps to develop skills in personal organisation, event management, teamwork and entrepreneurship to succeed in a competitive field. Your mathematics studies develop skills in the application of logical thinking, statistical or strategic analysis. You will also acquire skills such as analytical thinking, problem solving, independent research, report writing and the use of technical language.
