The MA in Early Music allows you to develop and refine knowledge and understanding of music written before around 1750. The programme will equip you with the skills and methodologies to undertake specialist musicological research, and will hone high-level transferable skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem-solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.
Specialism is offered in a range of areas within the field of early music, including chant, medieval liturgy, early Welsh music, 15th-century French secular music, Baroque music of the British Isles, music and drama in early modern England, source studies, cataloguing, and editing.
Students will work closely with established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector partners such as the Ucheldre Centre (Holyhead) and the National Trust, and it is often possible for students to undertake a work placement during the course of the programme.
