The purpose of the MMus degree is to train students to advanced levels in the academic, practical and technical areas of music.
The programme is distinctive in its range of musicological, vocational and practice-based elements. You will benefit from the diversity of the Departments research strengths and its reputation for excellent teaching.
You will take a core research training module which develops academic, writing and presentational skills, as well as providing an introduction to contemporary developments in musical research and practice. You will then take a module related to your chosen pathway and choose two from a wide range of optional modules. Having completed the Postgraduate Diploma stage of the programme, you will progress to Masters stage and submit a folio of work in your chosen specialism.
The flexibility of the MMus can help prepare you for a variety of careers including performance, composition, teaching, arts administration and music journalism. The programme also provides ideal preparation for future research work at PhD level.
The MMus offers the following specialist pathways:
* Creative Practice
* Popular Musicology
Optional modules include:
