Durham currently offers a range of exciting options for postgraduate study in musicology, ethnomusicology and composition. Research degrees fundamentally involve the preparation of an original thesis or composition portfolio, with the help of expert supervision: these range from a one-year MA by Research to a three-year PhD. Taught courses involve a mix of assessed course work and an orginal thesis or composition portfolio: they lead to the award of an MA. All courses can be taken either full-time or part-time.
We are happy to discuss the options with prospective applicants to help you make the right choice.
