Within the field of musicology, you can direct your studies towards one or several of the following:
- music in nineteenth-century culture
- opera studies
- popular music studies
- film music.
This course is unusual in combining a rigorous academic education with the opportunity to acquire vocational skills through our innovative Professional Experience module.
You take up work placements with a wide range of external arts organisations. Or undertake a project with one of our specialist research units. This gives you rich opportunities for career development and can pave the way for further study at PhD level.
Having an MA will make you stand out from the crowd, whether you are joining the course straight after graduating from undergraduate study or returning to study after a break of several years.
Our MA will provide you with the skills and knowledge to embark upon a career in music or to improve your current position. The transferable skills you acquire through studying for an MA in Music can also lead to careers in many other sectors, including management, law, journalism, media and the heritage industry.
