Course summary

Our Music MLitt enables you to develop a flexible individual research programme in classical, popular, world, contemporary, early, folk and traditional music, applying approaches of interest to you (eg historiographic, theoretical, cultural, critical), under the supervision of specialists who are leaders in their field.

This programme is primarily aimed at students who want to pursue independent musicological research, and who like the idea of first working on shorter research assignments (which can be on related or separate topics), before embarking on an extended final dissertation.

The MLitt provides an excellent foundation for continuing on to doctoral study. It is also a valuable qualification in its own right and can add a further dimension to your undergraduate degree, in a 3+1 model.

Delivery

The course is delivered remotely or in the Armstrong Building. All students are required to complete the Music Masters Research Training module during their first semester of study; beyond this, study is based on one-to-one tutorials with supervisors appropriate to your Research Assignments or dissertation.
