Course summary

At Sussex, we pride ourselves on our strengths in critical and theoretical thinking about music. As a member of our department you’ll have the opportunity to work with scholars specialising in:

  • musicology
  • opera
  • musical theatre
  • popular music
  • computer music
  • music philosophy
  • electronic music
  • film and media music
  • composition.

Our faculty work at the crossroads between high and low cultures. We do interdisciplinary research, drawing from fields as diverse as gender studies, critical race theory, performance studies, technological engineering and informatics.

You’ll join a vibrant community of active researchers and be encouraged to take part in our regular research groups and symposia. We welcome applicants aspiring to produce a challenging and original dissertation.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
