Course summary

The Musicology pathway in the MA Music programme qualifies graduates to embark upon their own research. While honing specialist skills, this pathway teaches students bold approaches to music as a practice and an academic discipline.

Taking up current debates and formative ideas, the Musicology pathway prepares students for advanced-level teaching, research, music editing, criticism, broadcasting, librarianship or historically aware performance. Rigorous training, for instance in working with primary sources, is combined with a radical interrogation of musicology’s future in the twenty-first century.

Two core options deliver fundamental knowledge, and you choose two options from those offered across MA and MMus pathways. The knowledge acquired from your coursework underpins your dissertation, supervised throughout the year in one-to-one tutorials with a leading academic.

Skills

You will develop investigation and evaluation skills, intellectual skills in music and specific research skills.

Careers

The programme is designed to provide preparation for those who wish to be involved in teaching, editorial work, journalistic criticism, lecturing, research at MPhil/PhD level, broadcasting, librarianship, or historically aware performance.
