Ethnomusicology is the study of music’s relationships to the social and cultural contexts in which it occurs. By studying the great variety of musics found across the globe, ethnomusicologists seek to understand what music is, and the role it plays in human interactions and experiences.
The University of Sheffield boasts one of the UK’s largest ethnomusicology sections, and the staff’s specialisms are unusually diverse, including: the music of Korea; folk music, dance and song of England, and of the British Isles; North Indian classical music; music and community; the use of digital technology in traditional music participation; and music and national identity.
Assessment takes a variety of forms such as reports and essays. They are usually individual assessments, even if they concern the processes and outcomes of group work.
