Course summary

Overview

PhD research programmes in Cambridge will allow you to explore your own interests in musicology, supported by the expertise of our staff. Our research encompasses critical and contextual investigation, mostly focused on twentieth century and contemporary music and performance practice, including Cuban music for example, but also early music practice and reception through the work of ethnomusicologist researchers. These areas of investigation frequently support the practice-based activities of contributing staff, both in the areas of composition and performance.

Careers

We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, in areas like writing up a paper for publication; placing an academic article; giving a conference paper; the doctoral writing style; updates on research methods and literature searches; internet training; editing skills for doctoral research; subsequent monograph publication; and dealing with festivals, agents, and publishers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in the department or organise research events like seminars and conferences.

In conjunction with the University’s research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
