Course summary

The Music Department offers promising candidates the opportunity to carry out research in one of the most dynamic institutions in Britain, with access to outstanding facilities. Our staff include composers, performers and scholars. Our wide research expertise covers the Medieval, Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods, 20th and 21st Century music, popular music, music analysis, music psychology, critical theory, electronic music, British music, ethnomusicology and sound studies. Postgraduate students will experience the latest research in music via our regular seminar series featuring leading scholars, composers, and performers. They will also have the opportunity to present their own research to fellow students and staff in our informal 'research lunch' series. Your degree will provide excellent preparation for your future career, but this can also be enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University and the College of Arts and Law. Birmingham's Music postgraduates work in a wide range of careers within and beyond the music world. A postgraduate degree in Music develops a broad base of skills including general skills such as communication, problem solving and research, and also specific skills developed by practice and performance such as self-management, team work and presentation.
