Course content

From exciting collaborations with your fellow students to learning from professional musicians, this Music MA course is about much more than studying and playing music. It’s about expanding your horizons, working together and immersing yourself in the training you need to establish a successful career in the music industry.

Do you have a clear idea about where you want to take your musical career? We offer three specialist pathways focusing on composition, performance, or interactive music and advanced studio production. If more than one of these options appeals to you, the part time mode of studies offers options to combine modules from different pathways to create the postgraduate music course that best suits your future aspirations.

And what better place to study your music master’s degree? Our New Adelphi Campus in Salford houses state-of-the-art facilities, including six recording studios, well-appointed rehearsal facilities and our 350-seater public theatre. And with easy access to Manchester, you’ll be able to experience the city’s exciting musical heritage.
