Course Summary

Our postgraduate degree in music stands apart from similar courses due to the breadth of musical genres that they will expose you to. From rock and pop, to classical, jazz, electronic and other world styles, each genre is given equal precedence, and you will have a great opportunity to learn from each tradition. During your time with us, you will also have the opportunity to collaborate on projects with other students and you will learn from academics who are all practicing professional musicians at national and international levels.

After completing the MA in Music people will find their professional skills to be considerably enhanced. We have found that this has enhanced career prospects in music education (teachers/lecturers), arts administration and as freelance performers and composers. There are also postgraduate research options in composition, performance, technology and musicology.
