About

The Modern Languages and Music (Hons) from the University of Birmingham is preparing you to live and work as an engaged citizen of the world.

Overview

Studying an undergraduate modern language from beginner or advanced level (French, German, Spanish or Russian) alongside Music is highly complementary and an exciting opportunity to contextualise your knowledge in each discipline. At the Univeristy of Birmingham, language is studied through the lens of the target culture's literature, history, politics and society, and through total immersion on the Year Abroad. You can find out more about your chosen combination here. Some combinations we are unable to offer due to timetabling restrictions and German alongside Music is only offered at Advanced level. 

During your Modern Languages and Music (Hons) from the University of Birmingham, you will acquire skills and knowledge that are highly prized by employers in many sectors, including:

  • Strong communication skills in English and one or more other languages
  • A deep understanding of other cultures
  • Critical thinking skills, alongside the ability to research, analyse and interpret information
