Enhance your reflective and analytical skillset through this programme designed primarily for existing practitioners looking to undertake continuous professional development. This 60-credit programme is a smaller version of the 120-credit Postgraduate Diploma and 180-credit MA programmes in Music and Wellbeing, and can be studied over 9 months full time, or 18 months part time.

You will expand your contextual understanding of the topic, explore the physical and mental benefits and problems associated with musical participation, and develop your knowledge of the current state of research in the field. The innovative Applied Professional Practice module will provide you with opportunities to work proactively and self-reflectively, and to develop professional relationships with our partner organisations.

Course content

The course comprises two modules that will increase your knowledge of the latest research in the field of music and wellbeing and support your continuing professional development. Music, Wellbeing and its Evaluation will expand your contextual knowledge of the subject, develop your knowledge of the current state of research in the field, and enable you to explore the physical and mental benefits and problems associated with musical participation. The innovative Applied Professional Practice module will provide you with opportunities to take a proactive and self-reflective role in your work, developing professional relationships with our partner organisations (e.g. North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre).

The course is designed for existing practitioners looking to undertake continuous professional development. If you choose to study part-time, you will study over a longer period and take fewer modules in each year.

If you opt for the Postgraduate Diploma or MA Music and Wellbeing qualification you’ll take more modules overall.
