Music (by research) MA

Study Details

MA 1 year Full-time, MA 2 years Part-time

This is a research degree not a taught course programme and applicants will need to have a clearly-focussed research proposal in their given area in order to be considered for admission to the research MA. Supervision and tutorial meetings are held on either a weekly or fortnightly basis throughout the academic year and by arrangement over the summer vacation. There is also an opportunity for all students to interact with one another in a Forum; there is a discussion group with issues such as writing about music, offering the opportunity for individual students to present aspects of their research topics. Students are also encouraged to attend the weekly Research Seminar series where invited speakers, staff members and PhD students give presentations about their latest work, and there are opportunities to meet other postgraduate researchers.
