This unique programme combines music psychology with neuroscience, focusing on both the biological and cognitive aspects of musical behaviour.
The MSc in Music, Mind and Brain (MMB) is highly interdisciplinary and draws on expertise from leading figures in the field, in areas ranging from music cognition, cognitive neuroscience, computational modelling, music education and music therapy.
As a student on the MSc, you will learn about topics in music psychology (from perception to cognition) and the cognitive neuroscience of music, and will acquire all the necessary skills to pursue your own high-quality research.

You should either have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class standard in Psychology OR a background in music plus demonstrable knowledge and/or experience of empirical research. Pre-sessional courses will be offered to those who lack the necessary background or need a refresher in Statistics.
Goldsmiths is not often considered to be most well known for its Psychology Department, however there is a very solid collection of academic and research staff, with many specialist subjects catered for that are not found elsewhere in London. The diversity of creative subjects that Goldsmiths has to offer ultimately reflects on to the Psychology Department, with a number of ‘alternative’ research areas being explored (for example, the MSc in Music, Mind and Brain, and the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit). This allows students much more freedom to explore their ideas in a variety of contexts.
