Music

Royal Holloway's Music department has an international reputation for its research. We have an excellent record of PhD completion and a thriving postgraduate community. Currently we have around 65 PhD students researching topics across the full range of Musicological and Ethnomusicological Studies and Compositional Practice. Our work on music covers a broad chronology (from early medieval to contemporary) and geography (spanning the Americas - including the Caribbean, Asia and Europe). Much of our research crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries and integrates perspectives from the fields of ethnomusicology, musicology, theory and composition, understood in the broadest terms. Staff specialism range widely, stretching back from the present to the Middle Ages, and encompassing popular and commercial musics, world musics, and music of the Western tradition.
