Taught Degrees

We offer a range of routes at masters level through a portfolio of taught programmes including Master of Music (MMus) and Master of Arts (MA).

The MA International Music Management prepares you for a future management career within the global music business. This diverse network of multi-billion dollar industries is a dynamic, fast-paced environment in which to build an exciting and rewarding career.

The MMus features four pathways - musicology, performance,  composition or music education - leading towards a final project (dissertation, recital or portfolio). Modules may be combined across the pathways to design a course that fits your needs.

For performers or musicologists wanting to study music from before 1800 in a broad cultural context, we offer an two interdisciplinary MAs through our humanities research centres: the MA in Medieval and Renaissance Culture, through the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture, and the MA in 18th-Century Studies, through the Southampton Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies. These programmes offer valuable opportunities for students to study music alongside the literature, material culture, buildings and landscape, intellectual history, and politics of the period.
