MA students take general and music-specific research training modules (30 credits); taught modules (90 credits); and a dissertation (60 credits). Diploma students follow a similar programme but do not undertake a dissertation.
Taught modules are typically drawn from: studying popular musics; cultural theories of music; music and historiography; studying world musics; advanced musical analysis and a range of specific topics in cultural and historical studies. It is also possible to take modules from the MMus programme and from other disciplines in the University.
