Course content

Composers are artists, and silence is their canvas.

Our MMus in Music (Composition) is distinctive in its range of musicological, compositional and performance-based elements.

You will benefit from the diversity of our research strengths, our many ensemble performance opportunities and our expertise in a range of musical fields. These currently include contemporary music for the concert hall, popular music, film music, opera, acoustic, electronic and computer-generated music. 

Academics within our Department of Music and graduates of this course are internationally recognised theorists and practitioners in a wide range of musical activity and areas of specialism.

What you will study

The Composition pathway of our MMus Music course is designed to develop your individual compositional style and technique through tutorial guidance and opportunities for performances, workshops and recordings.

Various stylistic and generic strands can be pursued individually or in combination, including jazz, music for screen and multimedia, contemporary music for the concert hall and computer sound design.

You will take two compulsory research training modules followed by a combination of composition-related options. 

This course provides ideal preparation for future research at PhD level.

Study and work abroad

There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.

Short-course opportunities

We welcome applications from students who would like to study one module from this masters course.

Research

Our Department of Music’s work achieves wide international circulation, both through established scholarly channels and, distinctively, through broadcast media (such as BBC TV, Channel 4, BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, and National Public Radio in the USA).

Our staff are in high demand for pre-concert talks at venues such as London’s South Bank and Barbican centres. 

The research environment at Surrey is sustained by open discussion and debate, and through the regular airing of work-in-progress. Our work is strengthened by the ready input of our peers and research students at various stages allowing collective engagement to foster innovation.
