The MA in Performance & Musicology degree programme is designed for students with strengths in performance who want opportunities to deepen and extend their skills. The pathway is carefully honed to foster and develop skills in performance and musicology at postgraduate level. The preparation of a dissertation allows you to develop research skills in an area closely related to your final recital performance. All of this takes place within the rich environment of the Department of Music's with its research and teaching strengths in musicology, performance, composition and technology.
