Course summary

About the course

This course is designed to enable you to pursue musicology at an advanced level of scholarship, with increased intellectual confidence, enhanced research skills, professional responsibility, and critical and theoretical awareness of sub-disciplines of musicology, appropriate to making an original contribution to the professional field of music studies. You will do so as part of a vibrant, stimulating and energetic community for music researchers at the University of Huddersfield.

We will provide you with a high-quality learning experience, based upon the teaching and research strengths of our staff. We will support you as you develop as a music scholar, learning to understand and evaluate a range of research methods and topics, and how to communicate these both within and outside of the wider academic community. Teaching will include archive-based sessions, which will give you confidence in handling and analysing a wide range of specialist sources from manuscripts to early sound recordings.

You will learn how to devise, research, manage and conduct a major independent study to completion, offering you expert knowledge and expertise to support you at every stage. You will be taught by members of our large team of academic staff, the topics of whose research and publications cover music from prehistoric and medieval periods to music of the present day. Particular areas of specialism in Musicology include music and gender, film musicology, theory and analysis, early music, source studies and editions, historical musicology, and cultural musicology.

Career support

On graduating from this course you will have developed specific advanced skills required for doctoral level scholarship and for a range of careers in professional music, such as portfolio careers that might include teaching and other pedagogical contexts, public engagement events, arts administration, music promotion, and further scholarly work.
