There are four options on our MA course:

  • MA Music
  • MA Music (Songwriting)
  • MA Music (Sound Production)
  • MA Music (Industries)
The course provides an exciting, transformative creative environment for the development of a range of skills across the main areas of the music industries.
It provides a focus for the generation, completion and release of new music performances, production projects, entrepreneurial projects and inter-disciplinary working. You will have the opportunity to explore your creative identity through a series of structured collaborative projects interwoven with individual music and music industry briefs. You will receive a high level of individually focused tutor feedback, including input from renowned industry practitioners.
The course provides a broad range of demanding content, strongly reflective of the creative industries; the contemporary creative practitioner is considered with content around intellectual property, publishing and marketing/distribution networks. There is strong academic focus with opportunities to conduct research and analysis, undertake critical reflection and develop a major creative project alongside an industry internship in the heart of Italy.


The modules within the MA Music Framework are strongly practical in focus. You will work independently (with tutor support) in responding to a series of exciting creative assignments. Taught classes focus on critical analysis of musical creativity, creative practice as research and important aspects of the global music industries.
The MA Music Framework (Songwriting, Sound Production, Industries) presents a mixture of title-specific modules and shared modules wherein collaborative practice mirrors that of the music industries themselves. You will work through the first two trimesters in building towards a major self-directed creative project that will form the basis of the final Masters submission.
