Course content

The MA in Music allows you to develop and refine your knowledge and understanding in areas of musicological and/or ethnomusicological study. The programme will equip you with the skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research in your chosen area of expertise, and will hone high-level skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem-solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.

Specialism is offered in a range of areas, including Western music history (from around 900 CE to the present day), editing, analysis, popular music, music in society (Western and non-Western), and music in Wales.

You will work closely with established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector partners such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Venue Cymru and the North Wales Jazz Society, and it is often possible for students to undertake a work placement during the course of the programme.
