Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.

Mae’r cwrs gradd cydanrhydedd yn galluogi i fyfyrwyr cyfuno astudio'r pynciau poblogaidd o Hanes a Cherddoriaeth.

Many students find joint honours both stimulating and rewarding for the similarities and differences they encounter between the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives as well as skills that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or the ability to experience and contribute to cutting–edge of research.

You will spend a similar amount of time on each subject, developing your music understanding and skills and pursuing a range of enquiries in different historical periods and topics.

The School of Music and the School of History, Archaeology and Religion offer challenging and fascinating suites of modules in their respective subject areas. The flexibility of the course allows you to specialise and develop your own interests, while acquiring a solid, broad-based education and developing transferable skills.

Home to the arts, Cardiff is a great location for the study of music and history in the UK. The city has a professional opera company, Welsh National Opera, and a professional symphony orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The School of Music enjoys a fruitful relationship with both organisations that allows, for instance, students to attend dress rehearsals and buy cut-price tickets for concerts.

The University has a superb historical research collection and historical sites in the city include Cardiff Castle and the resources of the National Museum.  

You are expected to have gained or shown evidence of working towards Grade 8 in one or more instruments or voice at the time of your application. You may be considered if you are not taking A-level Music but have Grade 8 Practical and Grade 7/8 Theory and are studying appropriate Humanities subjects at A-level.

This is a three-year full-time degree, consisting of 120 credits a year, split between the two Schools. Most modules in Music are worth 10 or 20 credits; those in Years 2 & 3 History are weighted at 30 credits.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2017/18. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2017

Blwyddyn un

You will take 60 credits in Music and 60 credits in History.

In Music, this is essentially a foundation year preparing you to take advantage of the creative and intellectual benefits of higher education. You will receive core instruction in analysis, harmony and counterpoint, history of music, composition and practical musicianship. The History side of your degree will comprise three survey modules designed to introduce you to broad periods and historical subjects, from the medieval world to the modern Far East.

Note that some Music modules provide essential preparation (‘prerequisites’) for more advanced modules if you wish to pursue them in later years.

To complement your academic study, you are actively encouraged to join the University Choir or Orchestra and other ensembles.

Blwyddyn dau

You will take 60 credits in Music and 60 credits in History. 

In Music, courses are more advanced and you will focus on more specialist topics, choosing from four groups: Composition and Electroacoustic Studies, Written and Practical Musicianship, Analytical and Critical Skills, and Historical Studies.

In History your courses become more chronologically focused with particular subject areas that build on the survey modules of Year 1.

Our year two modules on the Business of Music I/II are designed to help you better understand different branches of the music profession and give an opportunity for a short placement in an area related to music or the arts, either in one block or as a series of regular workplace visits.

Blwyddyn tri

You will take 60 credits in History and 60 credits in Music.

In Music, you choose again from the four subject groups, and can pursue one of the three major academic projects: Dissertation, Project in Ethnomusicology, or Project in Music Analysis. 

History modules in the final year place considerable emphasis on working with primary documents. These are often unique materials uncovered during your lecturers’ researches. From these foundations students are encouraged to build complex historical interpretations, and to challenge received ideas and accounts in their chosen field of study.

You may complete a short composition portfolio (Composition IV) and/or a ‘closed’ recital in front of examiners only (Practical Musicianship IV).

The option in both subjects to write a dissertation lets you choose a topic that draws on both disciplines, if you wish.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut caf fy addysgu?

In Music, you will be taught by academic staff with expertise across composition, performance, musicology, ethnomusicology, and popular music.

Instrumental tuition is fully funded by the School on your principal study instrument. This includes accompaniment at your final recital. You will receive 24 half-hour lessons over the course of the year.

We use a range of teaching and learning styles, including lectures, small-group seminars and workshops, individual tutorials, ensemble instrumental tuition, rehearsals and independent study.

History modules are delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars, classes, document workshops and individual tutorials. Students also undertake independent study and research, under the guidance of a supervisor.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

For both subjects at the start of each year you will be given a guide to module aims, learning outcomes, methods of assessment, module syllabuses, and reading and listening lists. Your allocated personal tutor will be able to provide advice and guidance on module choices and you will have regular meetings with them.

For the final-year projects you will have a supervisor to monitor progress and provide individual consultations by arrangement.

You will also have a personal tutor in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion.

You will have access through the Learning Central website to relevant multimedia material, presentations, lecture handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Methods of assessment vary from module to module and may include essay assignments, presentations, extended projects, performances, and written exams.

You will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both discipline specific and more generic ‘employability skills’, such as:

  • oral and written communication skills
  • coping with uncertainty/complexity
  • creativity and innovative thinking
  • computer literacy
  • skills such as leadership, teamwork and self-management
  • identifying, recording and communicating your relevant career attainments
