Course content

This programme offers an intense introduction to methodologies and research techniques in musicology, covering both classical and popular music, autonomous works and functional music, for example for religious ceremonies or for the screen. You'll learn the methodologies and research techniques necessary to analyse specific source material and learn to address the more philosophical questions raised, such as those of history, canons and archival research, performance studies, fieldwork, semiotics, the body, race, diaspora, gender, sexuality and consumption. Drawing on the very broad range of research at Edinburgh, it allows students to pursue, in greater depth, an area of special interest or to develop more specialised skills to further their careers.
