Course summary

Course description

Drawing students from all over the world, this course focuses on the application of psychological research to musical experiences and professions, and attracts graduate musicians who work in the fields of music education, performance and therapy, or teaching. We provide you with training in the research methods used by psychologists, together with the conceptual framework within which these methods can help to inform and explore musical expertise and understanding.

The first year is dedicated to three broad areas of research: Musical Development, Psychology of Performance, and Researching Music in Everyday Life and Wellbeing. The second year offers training in Psychological Research Methods, which is followed by dissertation research on an individually chosen research project in which you use music psychological theory and methods to investigate a self-defined research question.

You will also benefit from newly-written online materials, and from the department’s extensive collection of electronic books and journals in music education. You will be assigned a personal tutor and dissertation supervisor who will support your learning throughout the course.
