Course content

Designed to introduce students to the history, theory and practice of musicology, the programme is both self-contained as a programme in its own right and also ideal as a preparation for candidates who have the ambition to progress subsequently to doctoral research in musicology.
An alternative to conventional postgraduate programmes in musicology, the MA in Music and Cultural History draws on the diverse expertise of four internationally renowned scholars to combine the very best of traditional and contemporary scholarly practice.
