Course content

The MMus degree advances your exploration of today’s creative music practice in all its complexity. From a range of stimulating pathways, you choose one that best suits your interests. Modules are shared across pathways, and are rooted in academic and practice-based research.

The MMus degree allows students to advance in performance and composition in the broadest sense, while acquiring academic knowledge.

The pathways available are:

The programme’s modules explore music as an evolving subject and cover repertories from Western art music through to electronic, popular, audio-visual, non-Western, and contemporary repertories.

  • You develop systematic, critical and creative approaches, exploring musical practice, discourses, and contexts
  • You develop an independent and original approach to creative practice
  • You explore interrelationships between music and other subjects, between theory and practice, and between performance and structural interpretation

Goldsmiths is ranked in the 42nd in the world for Performing Arts (QS World University Subject Rankings 2021).
