Course content

A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one year (full time) research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component. Such programmes are attractive to those wanting a briefer research degree than a PhD.

Research Master's students choose a specific project to work on and have a greater degree of independence in their work than is the case with a taught masters course.

Department specialisms

Popular music, music and gender, medieval music, interactive computer music, 18th and 19th Century musicology, music theory and analysis, experimental and improvised music, performance practices of the 18th to the 21st Centuries, opera and music for film and television. Innovative work with technologies, including three-dimensional sound spatialisation, spectral audio processing, convolution reverb, and custom DSP instrument design.

Information for international students
