MA Critical and Applied Musicology


Course Description

The MA Critical and Applied Musicology programme facilitates movement from general methodological concerns towards greater specialisation, whilst preserving some flexibility and student choice. Particularly distinctive is the balance struck between topics and approaches traditionally regarded as ‘historical musicology’ and those associated with the ‘critical’ or ‘new musicology’ movement. As a major study students choose either the Dissertation (supervised by a staff member whose research specialisms reflect as closely as possible the subject of study) or an Editorial Project (involving the transcription of original source materials, selected in consultation with a project supervisor). In addition, students take a core musicology module, Issues in Critical Musicology, and have the option to take Editing and Archival Studies.

Core Modules

Professional Studies (30 credits)
Issues in Critical Musicology (30 credits)
Dissertation, or Editorial Project (60 credits)

Optional Modules

One or two of the following 30 credit modules:
Editing and Archival Studies
Aesthetic Theory
Short Dissertation

One of the following 30 credit modules (depending on choices above):
Individual Project
Composition Studies
Instrumental or Vocal Recital
Concerto/Song Cycle/Extended work
Applied Performance Studies
Computer Music Practice
