Course summary

Overview

This MA will give you an advanced and discerning knowledge of music industry practices, drawing on our international research and the experience of our tutors. On it you'll investigate current music industry practices in-depth.

The programme is taught alongside the MA in Classical Music Industry, which will broaden your theoretical understanding and opportunities for research.

All postgraduates also have access to the department's programme of research seminars and performances.

Why Music?

Strong research culture

Across the department, our research activity has a strong interdisciplinary nature and is concentrated in three cross-cutting areas:

  • Critical and Contextual Approaches
  • Creative Practice
  • Media and Industry Studies.

We're at the forefront of research and postgraduate teaching. Our Institute of Popular Music (IPM) was the first academic centre created specifically to study popular music and where better than in the home of the Beatles? It also boasts an enviable archive of donated recorded material.

Career prospects

Students from the taught postgraduate programmes in the department of Music have gone on to a wide range of careers, including various positions in the music industries, museums, arts administration, journalism, publishing, and teaching. PhDs in Music are in full-time lectureships around the world (e.g. Canada, Sweden). This programme has been recognised by the AHRC as appropriate training for advanced research, and prepares students for a level of further training equivalent to doctoral study.
