Music (Contemporary Music Studies)

The course allows students to choose 1 of 2 core modules that provide specific research skills relevant to the preferred area of focus; students select an individual programme of study that can incorporate a range of intellectual concerns, skills and understandings, leading to a clearly focused research dissertation; this route is appropriate for those who have a particular interest they wish to develop which is not covered by one of our specialist pathways, or for those who are seeking a broadly-based programme of music study at postgraduate level (taking both research methods modules, for example, would provide exceptional training for those going on to doctoral study).

Entry requirements

1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree in music, or an equivalent qualification. Your qualification should comprise a substantial academic element relevant to the selected pathway and option choices; for the generic award students should write a detailed proposal explaining the rationale for their choices and how these provide a coherent programme of study leading to dissertation; a detailed transcript of the students' degree is preferred; applications from people without formal qualifications who can demonstrate equivalent professional experience are encouraged, in which case students are advised to enclose with the application examples of their written work.
