The Music MA is a flexible programme designed to cater for those with a wide range of interests and specialisms. It is conceived as a 'next step' after the undergraduate degree, either as a stepping stone to research, as a qualification for teaching in the FE sector or simply to satisfy a thirst for development. There are 12 specialist pathways that you can choose from; each includes a range of core and optional taught modules and you will complete the course with a dissertation, recital or composition portfolio.
- British Music Studies pathway - Choral Conducting pathway - Critical Musicology pathway - Early Music pathway - Electroacoustic composition/sonic art pathway - Instrumental/Vocal Composition pathway - Mixed Composition pathway - Musicology pathway - Open Pathway with Performance - Open Pathway without Performance - Performance pathway - Performance Practice pathway (post-1800)
Music postgraduates develop a broad base of skills including general skills such as communication, problem solving and research, and also specific skills developed by practice and performance such as self-management, team work and presentation. A snapshot of graduate destinations over a five-year period has identified a variety of career paths from being a music tutor or a singing teacher to becoming a business analyst or advertising executive. Over the last five years, we are proud that 100% of our Music students have been in employment or further study within six months of graduating.
