Course summary

Overview

This course offers opportunities to develop a range of research and analytical skills needed to evaluate and evidence the relationship between musical engagement and wellbeing.

Your contextual understanding of the topic will be expanded through the core Music, Wellbeing and its Evaluation module, and you’ll develop the research skills needed to conduct independent research.

You’ll examine the physical and mental benefits and problems associated with musical participation, exploring current research in the field, and the innovative Applied Professional Practice module will provide you with opportunities to take a proactive and self-reflective role in your work, developing professional relationships with our partner organisations.

The course is ideal for existing practitioners wishing to enhance their skills or undertake continuous professional development, or students wishing to develop their interests by taking a smaller selection of modules than the 180-credit MA Music and Wellbeing course.

Career opportunities

You'll gain a range of transferable skills in research, self-reflection and evaluation, interpretation and oral and written communication.

All of these can be applied in musical as well as non-musical contexts. Recent postgraduates from the School have gone on to launch careers within the fields of music education, music advertising, business development, marketing and administration, and artist management.

Others have also continued with their research at PhD level. We also offer additional support as you develop your career plans: the School of Music boasts an Alumni Mentoring Network, where students can be supported by past students as they start to plan their next steps.

Careers support

We encourage you to prepare for your career from day one. That’s one of the reasons Leeds graduates are so sought after by employers.

The Careers Centre and staff in your faculty provide a range of help and advice to help you plan your career and make well-informed decisions along the way, even after you graduate.
