Course content

Our MMus programme is distinctive in its range of musicological, compositional and performance-based elements.

You will benefit from the diversity of our research strengths, numerous ensemble performance opportunities and expertise in a range of musical fields, including contemporary music for the concert hall, popular music, film music, opera, acoustic, electronic and computer-generated music.

Academics within our school and graduates of this programme are internationally recognised theorists and practitioners in a wide range of musical activity and areas of specialism.

The Musicology pathway of the MMus Music programme is designed to accommodate a flexible approach that reflects staff research expertise, students’ own specialisations and the increasingly polyglot nature of the discipline.

Art and popular music are both catered for within the pathway, drawing on the expertise of staff across these areas.

You will take two compulsory research training modules followed by a combination of compulsory specialism-related modules and optional modules. You may then choose to undertake a dissertation.

The programme can help prepare you for a variety of careers including performance, composition, teaching and arts administration. The programme also offers ideal preparation for future research work at PhD level.
