Your course will be formulated to cater for your specific needs on an individual basis. It may comprise either a written project of between 10,000 and 20,000 words on a topic approved by your supervisor, or a substantial composition or group of compositions. This will depend on whether you are following the musicology, ethnomusicology or composition pathways.
This course is for graduate students who wish to pursue a particular interest in the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology or composition.
Course format and assessment
Your completed project (written work or composition) will be read by at least two examiners and the result approved by an external examiner.
Our graduates use the skills and knowledge they develop with us in a variety of ways. Some will use them to pursue careers in the media, arts and work in other related areas. Others go on to further research, while some return to their successful music careers.
