About

The Music programme offered by the Bangor University allows you to develop and refine your knowledge and understanding in areas of musicological and/or ethnomusicological study. 

Overview

The Music programme  from the Bangor University will equip you with the skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research in your chosen area of expertise, and will hone high-level skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem-solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.

Specialism is offered in a range of areas, including Western music history (from around 900 CE to the present day), editing, analysis, popular music, music in society (Western and non-Western), and music in Wales.

You will work closely with established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector partners such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Venue Cymru and the North Wales Jazz Society, and it is often possible for students to undertake a work placement during the course of the programme.

Careers and Employability

The MA in Music will give you a taste for original research, and will provide you with subject-specific knowledge and academic skills that will set you on course for further study at PhD level and beyond. The programme will also equip you with skills in critical thinking, analysis and communication which are valued by employers both within and outside the field of music. Recent graduates have pursued successful careers as writers, editors, arts administrators, teachers, educational advisers, performers, and business people..
