Course summary

Whatever your interests, our Musicology course gives you the opportunity not only to develop your research skills, but to complement your training in musicology with studies in other areas of music.

Our course is a chance for you to mould a programme of study to your own needs and aspirations, and may be approached as preparation for a research degree in music.

However, it is important that a musicologist develops complementary skills and/or knowledge outside their specialism which will help equip them for a future career: professional musicologists typically find themselves, amongst other things, teaching, managing and administering; some even maintain parallel careers as professional performers or composers.

Course structure

The structure of our MA in Musicology is as follows:

Research Methods and Presentation (30 credits)
Dissertation Proposal (30 credits)
Professional Development Option (30 credits)
Professional Development Option (30 credits)
Dissertation (60 credits)

You will learn through a variety of methods, ranging from one-to-one and small-group tutorials to workshops, seminars, lectures and independent study. Support for your research project will be provided by a supervisor who will help guide you as you develop your skills as an independent researcher.
