In musicology, research strengths include not only the Western art music tradition, but also screen media, non-Western and popular music. We have particular depth of expertise in the early Middle Ages (especially Spain), and in the 19th and 20th centuries (including the music of France, Britain, Germany and Soviet Russia). We also have expertise in Anglophone vernacular traditions, including jazz and hip hop; in opera, film, music and the history and philosophy of technology, music and migration; and cultural and reception history more generally.
A significant number of graduates from this programme develop careers in higher education or work on high-level research projects in the field of music; some graduates take up careers as composers and musicians.
