Course summary

The MA Psychology in the Arts (Music) has been created for students who want to explore the role music plays within our lives and understand its significance, and influence on the human psyche.

This cross-disciplinary programme is the first of its kind in Scotland, and RCS is the only UK conservatoire to offer a Master of Arts postgraduate degree in this rapidly growing area. It has been developed as a part-time, online blended learning programme to enable students from across the globe to study alongside professional commitments..

Health and wellbeing are at the core of this two-year programme. Supported by a team of experienced music pyschologists, you will explore three key areas of music psychology (developmental, performance and social) and associated research skills before embarking on a bespoke negotiated research project..

The course has been created for people with a strong interest or established practice in music. We are looking for learners who have agency within their own artistic praxis, want to discover the links with psychology, and who wish to make a positive contribution to the world around them. You should be open to new and diverse views and perspectives and be hungry to share in a dynamic community of creative practitioners where you can be part of emerging conversations designed to shape the future of music psychology research and knowledge exchange..
