Course content

This research-intensive programme offers a comprehensive range of options and features three pathways – Musicology (including critical theory, history and analysis), Composition, and Performance – leading to a final project, which may be a dissertation, recital or portfolio. Each pathway offers skills training, orientation modules and individually taught work. The MMus is normally the next step after either a BA or BMus in music.

Composition compulsory modules: Analytical Techniques; Composition Portfolio; Composition Seminar

Musicology compulsory modules: Analytical Techniques; Critical Practice in Musicology; Research Skills 1 and 2; dissertation

Performance compulsory modules: Elements of Musical Performance; Performance Teaching Seminar; Professional Recitals 1 and 2

For performers or musicologists wanting to study music from before 1800 in a broad cultural context, we offer the MA Medieval and Renaissance Culture and the MA Eighteenth Century Studies.
