Description

Advertisement

A distinctive part of the Departments postgraduate provision in music, this programme is structured as a one year full-time, or two years part-time, Masters degree in which you take a research training module and select one optional module in preparation for a substantial dissertation (40,000 words) in musicology. It is designed to appeal to those who wish to pursue a more focused and developed research interest. It may also be viewed as a fast track to registration for the PhD programme.

You will gain from complementary and integrated learning experiences, benefiting from seminar or class teaching in a specialist area of musicology, research training in seminars attended by postgraduate students working in a range of artistic fields, as well as one-to-one supervision with an academic who supports and guides the research for the dissertation. The programme therefore offers the flexibility necessary for you to develop to the full your interests in the academic study of music.

Requirements

Normally a First or Upper Second class honours degree, with music being a prominent part of the degree. Approved equivalent qualifications or experience will be considered, particularly in the case of overseas students and candidates with less conventional educational backgrounds. Non-native speakers of English will normally be required to have IELTS 6.5 or above (or equivalent).
