Applied Musicology


Course Description

Applied Musicology focuses on the musical infrastructure and offers the specific knowledge and skills required for a musicologist to operate successfully within international musical practice.

The programme is a reflective training in both current and innovative approaches in musicology, whereas at the same time academic musicological skills are 'translated' into the day-to-day challenges in a musical life.

The programme is designed in a direct dialogue with top of the bill institutions within the musical infrastructure in the Netherlands and beyond; it does not discriminate between classical and popular music. The curriculum augments the knowledge and skills gained through the Utrecht Bachelor programme in Musicology, with its accents on both historical musicology and the relation of music with other media.

Students are accompanied intensively while developing research and reflective skills relevant to questions in contemporary music production, programming, financing and participation. Required skills (for example journalistic writing skills) are trained extensively in classroom labs, coached by professors and professionals.
