Programme structure

Early Music studies have always been a centrepiece of Birmingham’s offerings, and the department includes three early music specialists: Mary O’Neill, who has expertise in music from the Middle Ages to the late 18th Century; Amy Brosius, specialist in seventeenth-century vocal music; and Andrew Kirkman, scholar of late medieval music and director of early music projects from the fifteenth to the early nineteenth century. In addition, CEMPR has some twenty professional early music performers of international standing on its staff who not only teach early vocal and instrumental techniques and repertoire, but also engage in practice-led research.

You will study three core modules:

Music Research Colloquium
Introduction to Musicology
Advanced Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Music

You will also choose one optional module and complete a 15,000-word musicology dissertation.
