Course summary

Delve beneath the surface of music with this pathway, designed for students interested in the academic study of music.

The Musicology pathway of our PGDip Music programme combines music history with critical musicology, allowing you to deepen your knowledge of western art music in a critical and theoretically informed manner. By the time you graduate, you'll have the ability to evaluate complex ideas and to carry out independent research on musicological areas of interest. You will understand how your own work fits into the broader field of musicology, and will have the capacity to contribute to that field.

You're encouraged to attend the weekly Research Seminar series where invited speakers, staff members and PhD students give presentations about their latest work, giving you the opportunity to meet other postgraduate researchers. The Department has a broad community of staff and students working in many different areas of music history and critical musicology.

Careers and skills

By the end of the programme, you will have gained a deep understanding of representative areas of western art music history. You will have enhanced your writing and critical thinking skills, and will be able to communicate your knowledge effectively; skills that are sought after in a wide range of careers. Your research skills will also leave you well prepared for PhD study and beyond.
