Course summary

Programme overview

There are five pathways in this flexible MA programme:

  • Composition
  • Medieval Music
  • Musicology

The units you take will vary according to your chosen pathway, but all include music training units, such as Research Skills for Musicians, specialised units specific to the pathway, and a large menu of optional units. These are followed by a major project: a dissertation or edition for musicologists (including those on the Russian Music and Medieval Music pathways), a minor and a major recital for performers, or a portfolio of compositions for composers.

Careers

Students who complete the MA in Music have gone on to careers as musicians, senior music assistants, organ scholars and self-employed composers. A number of MA graduates have also become music teachers.
