MA Music embraces the diversity of music scholarship, combining historical, ethnographic, analytical, critical, and practice-based approaches.
The programme is designed to pave the way for professional work in the music industries, developing skills that will help in a variety of music-based careers such as writing, performing, composing, and teaching, or in further research.
Through taught and practical modules, students can develop methods and skills to be applied to their field of interest which may encompass ethnomusicology, musicology, composition, and performance.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a series of research and practice-based talks where scholars and practitioners are invited to share their work. Past events have included Tower Talks, Critical Encounters, and the annual music conference.
