Most postgraduate conservatoire degrees are focused on performance or composition, and don’t cater for musicologists. This is not the case at Birmingham Conservatoire, where this course provides you with the opportunity not only to develop your skills as a musicologist, but to supplement them with complementary studies.
Your own research project will be at the heart of your programme. We are happy to hear from applicants considering research in any area of musicology, but we are particularly keen to attract those interested in the specialist areas covered by the Conservatoire’s large team of research-active staff.
These include French music of the seventeenth, eighteenth and twentieth centuries, Italian Baroque music, contemporary film and television music, theory and analytics, late medieval music, theory and critical editing, twentieth-century music theory and analysis, and music critics and criticism.
Musicologists progress into a multitude of roles, and you could find yourself teaching, managing and/or administering, as well as maintaining career as a performer or composer. Our graduates have progressed into PhD study and University careers beyond that.
