The MA in Music provides rigorous and focused preparation for those intending to proceed to doctoral research (and conforms fully with the training requirements of the Arts and Humanities Research Council). It also offers a stimulating and exciting experience for those still wondering whether or not to embark on a PhD, and for those simply wishing to take the course as an end in itself. The MA in Music offers the following pathways:

• Music and Geography
• Music on Stage and Screen
• Early Music
• Music Theory and Analysis

This course has been radically restructured in the past two years to offer a flexible, contemporary and intensive course of study. It is designed to provide thorough preparation for those progressing to further research, and to meet the intellectual and vocational needs of students pursuing Masters study as an end in itself.

Formal tuition is supplemented by a range of other provision offered by the Department of Music and the University. Fortnightly music colloquia form the cornerstone of the Department’s research culture, presenting a programme of internationally renowned guest speakers.

The Department hosts an annual Postgraduate Day, giving postgraduate students an opportunity to deliver papers on their research, and there is a schedule of more informal events organised by students (including a reading group and a forum, one-off study days and conferences, and performance and composition activities). Students also enjoy the facilities provided in a dedicated postgraduate room.
