Complete a second masters degree in an Arts subject.
The MLitt is an alternative to the PhD if you already have a masters degree and want to complete a substantial research project. You can complete an MLitt in most subjects offered by the Faculty of Arts, subject to approval and availability of supervision. You may be able to further your research interests in the same subject as your first masters degree, or undertake research in a new area.
One year of full-time study or up to two years of consecutive part-time study
Explore your options in performance and music studies
Within Music, you can study performance and hone your musical skills. Learn from some of the finest instrument teachers in the country. You can learn about music technology, gain an insight into the music industry and understand the relationship between music and the wider community. You will learn how to write about music and analyse different strategies of music education.
You also have the opportunity to participate in the University’s choir or orchestra during your studies.
Where can Music take you?
The music industry runs on more than performers and composers. Behind the music there are people with an in-depth knowledge of artistic demands and industry standards. Our graduates have found careers in performance, education, broadcasting, journalism and academia.
Where could this programme take you?
An MLitt could be useful for a range of academic or professional careers, especially if you don’t want to undertake doctoral study.
