Psychology of Music

This course is the longest established masters in music psychology in the UK, and a collaboration with the Department of Psychology. Our tutors - Nikki Dibben, Stephanie Pitts, Vicki Rowe, Renee Timmers and Victoria Williamson - have been published widely in music psychology and education. This course allows you to use psychological methods and theory to interpret and understand musical behaviours, sounds and ideas. You will be introduced to a range of areas including music cognition and neuroscience, musical development, music in everyday life, and musical performance. You may specialise within an area through a written dissertation, and the pursuit of original research, generally including experimental or observational empirical investigation. Students may also take cognitive neuroscience modules within the Department of Psychology.
