Program description

Songwriting (Campus Based) MA

From day one, you’ll write songs, using alternative strategies designed to work alongside your current creative approaches.

Applying practice-based learning at our world-heritage research centres, through a range of creative strategies and critical perspective on your songs’ relationship with audience and industry, you’ll develop and focus your output. This is informed by a blend of practical, theoretical and scholarly practice.

Lyric-writing, and a fluent command of imagery, metaphor, and narrative is nurtured, as chords and melody take shape around language’s meaning, and vice versa. You’ll investigate the power and potential of song forms, modes of address, perspectives, time-frames, and characters.

Having stretched the range of creative options available to you within your own artistic palette, you’ll turn your hand to research; this is your entry to the postgraduate world. You’ll identify the industrial context relevant to your songs; your knowledge of your field will become intensified through primary research, secondary research, and contact with guest speakers from industry. Collaborating with songwriters from near and far will increase your creative and networking range. Ahead of your Major Project, contextual and collaborative research perform the vital task of shaping your song outputs.

Entry requirements for our postgraduate courses vary. We are generally looking for a good honours degree or equivalent. Some courses also require an interview or the submission of a portfolio of work. We positively welcome Accreditation of Prior Learning (APEL).
