Music (Popular Music Research)

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
