The Master of Music programme will be made up individually in part, on the basis of the student´s focus and vision on his/her future professional practice. The focus and vision are expressed in the chosen research project, (external) projects and the internship. In the research project, you will focus on a subject that is relevant to your future professional practice, and you will show the results and conclusions in a final product (thesis, CD or DVD) and presentation (lecture, lecture-recital or workshop).
As a student of the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU), you will also be encouraged to set up interdisciplinary projects and to create cross-overs.
