In consultation with the programme convenor you will design a unique course of study, drawing upon our extensive offerings in Musicology, Composition, and Performance. Modules from outside the discipline (e.g. a language) may also be available if relevant to your individual pursuits.

You will also choose two optional modules and complete a final project in the form of a composition portfolio, 15,000-word musicology dissertation, recital, recital with commentary or edition with commentary. You will choose your modules and the format of your final project in consultation with the programme convenor
