The MA in Music allows you to develop and refine your knowledge and understanding in areas of musicological and/or ethnomusicological study. The programme will equip you with the skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research in your chosen area of expertise, and will hone high-level skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem-solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.
Specialism is offered in a range of areas, including Western music history (from around 900 CE to the present day), editing, analysis, popular music, music in society (Western and non-Western), and music in Wales.
First degree at British Bachelor’s standard: 2(ii) or higher in a relevant subject.
Candidates with a 2.ii degree must however achieve a 2.i in a substantial project in their chosen area of study (e.g. dissertation).
English proficiency (for non-native English or Welsh speakers): IELTS English test with a score of 6.0 (no element below 5.5).
Applications from working professionals with non-graduate qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and candidates may be asked to submit a piece of written work in support of their application. Please contact us for more information.
