Music Psychology in Education, Performance and Wellbeing (Distance Learning) degree offered at University of Sheffield focuses on the application of psychological research to musical experiences and professions, and attracts graduate musicians who work in the fields of music therapy, performance, or teaching.
We provide you with training in the research methods used by psychologists, together with the conceptual framework within which these methods can help to inform and explore musical expertise and understanding.
In the first year you can select essay titles that emphasise the educational aspects of each module. In your second year you can specialise in educational research. You'll also complete a Readings in Music Education module, followed by dissertation research on an aspect of musical learning that is informed by music psychology theory and methods.
