If you have a broad range of musical interests and would prefer not to specialise in any one particular area, this course is ideal for you. There are fewer core modules than on the more specialised pathways so you can choose more optional modules from our extensive list, including modules taken from the specialised pathways.
The course aims to:
The core modules concentrate on research methods and colloquia, which introduce you to a broad range of issues in music. You can then choose from a large range of modules, which include those based in performance, composing, music education and popular music.
The major project offers you the opportunity to focus on an area of your own choice and to specialise through written work or composition. You can choose from a wide range of possible topics relating to your own interests. In addition you can join any of the wide variety of University ensembles or form your own ensemble.
Samples of work
Prospective students need to send in an essay of around 1,500 words on a music topic.
