Philosophy & Religion and Music
You can study Philosophy and Religion as a joint honours degree with Music (50% Philosophy and Religion, 50% Music).
Philosophy and Religion offers the opportunity to study some of the most important and challenging philosophical ideas that have shaped Western culture, and to consider how they interrelate with Western religious thought. Philosophy and Religion at Bangor has developed out of a longstanding tradition in these subject areas within the University since the 19th century, and you will find here a friendly and informal atmosphere that will help you to cultivate the skills of debate and independent thinking.
The Music aspect of this course includes performing, composing and studying music of all eras in a lively atmosphere of creative activity and scholarly endeavour.

During each semester you will study modules equivalent to 60 credits, making a total of 120 credits per year. We use a wide range of methods for assessment, including essays, book reviews, case studies, reports, presentations, and written examinations.

In the final year, you will be encouraged to develop this topic further, or choose a different one of your choice, to undertake independent research under the guidance of a dissertation supervisor, leading to a 1000-word dissertation.

While many graduates pursue careers in the area of music, a degree in Music is also good preparation for a wide range of employment in administration, commerce, management, and other professions. Our graduates have become professional performers, composers, university lecturers, researchers, teachers, arts administrators, music therapists, music publishers, librarians, concert managers, stage managers, recording and broadcasting producers, and sound engineers. Many former students have followed these degrees with further musical training, as performers, scholars or composers, and there are opportunities for all these at Bangor.
