Course summary

About the course

The MSt can serve both as a self-contained course for students wishing to pursue more advanced studies in performance for one year or as an excellent preparation for doctoral research. Students on the MSt courses in musicology, performance and composition follow a common structure, supported by appropriate individual supervision or tuition in their chosen specialism.

The Master of Studies in Music (Performance) introduces a broad range of current methodologies and approaches in music scholarship. The main MSt teaching and coursework is done in the first two terms and the third is reserved for completion of assessed work.

Assessment

You will undertake an examined lecture-recital at the beginning of Hilary term and will submit an essay in musicology at the end of Hilary term. The final assessment will include a second essay in musicology and a longer recital at the end of Trinity term.

Graduate destinations

Typical graduate destinations include doctoral research in music and other music-related or broadly cultural professions.
