7802F - Music MLitt

Music MLitt

Entry Year:

Start in: September 2022

Develop a flexible, individual research programme under the supervision of specialists who are leaders in their field.

Overview

Your Music MLitt can focus on classical, popular, world, contemporary, early, folk and traditional music. You'll apply approaches of interest to you, such as:

  • historiographical
  • theoretical
  • cultural
  • critical

This programme is primarily aimed at students who want to pursue independent musicological research. You'll work on shorter research assignments (which can be on related or separate topics), before embarking on an extended final dissertation.

The MLitt provides an excellent foundation for continuing on to doctoral study. It is also a valuable qualification in its own right and can add a further dimension to your undergraduate degree, in a 3+1 model.
