Course content

City’s Ethnomusicology MA introduces students to current thinking within ethnomusicology, with a particular focus on ethnographic work in urban contexts.

Students have the opportunity to consider current issues and debates in contemporary music studies and to explore the complex interrelationships between music and other subjects, and between theory and creative practice. The course aims to develop both critical and creative approaches to musical practice and study as well as training students in fundamental research skills which may also be useful in later doctoral study.
