From mainstream to underground, this degree embraces popular music in its many forms: rock, pop, folk, urban, jazz, experimental and commercial. We've even helped to set up our own independent record label, NX Records, to promote our students' work.
This degree reflects the diversity and excitement of music in the twenty-first century, taking in everything from classical music to contemporary jazz and electronic practices, and gives you the opportunity to mix performance, composition and research.
The MA Music advances your exploration of today’s music in all its complexity. From a range of stimulating pathways, you choose one that best suits your interests. Modules are shared across pathways, and are rooted in academic and practice-based research.
