Birmingham City University
This course provides the opportunity to explore jazz as a world-wide musical culture. It covers the core issues which occupy jazz academics, fans and musicians alike, and jazz as a popular music culture. Students can choose a further option that allow them to explore ways to make a living out of jazz, curate its heritage, or study its place as in the cultural industries and cultural policy. Students work closely with other students and staff from across the world who study on our Music Industries, Music Heritage and Cultural Policy MAs.
Candidates normally need to have a 2.1 Bachelor's degree or higher in a relevant subject area and normally evidence of work in, or a familiarity with, jazz music industry or jazz media. We welcome non-traditional applications, particularly from applicants with substantial professional or musical experience. Prior experiential learning is an acceptable route to the course.
Issues in jazz studies; popular music as culture; popular music as commerce or creative industries and cultural policy or issues in music heritage; production lab or research methods; MA by practice or MA by dissertation.
