Program description

Music is a diverse and exciting subject area, constantly evolving and pushing at the boundaries between everyday life and art. At the University's Reid School of Music, we embrace that spirit of diversity, enabling the study of music in a variety of forms. We offer programmes that cover exceptionally broad areas of musical study including compositional skills, music history and
criticism, performance, popular culture, film music, community music and music psychology. If you're passionate about music and would like to focus on it through a mix of academic and creative study, the MA (Hons) programme is for you.
You will explore the role, value and diversity of music in modern society and consider the relationship of music to the other arts and examine it from a creative, scientific, critical and historical perspective. Throughout the programme you will be ideally placed to study the interaction between music and other arts, such as film, animation and installation and to participate in collaborations across Edinburgh College of Art.
After graduating, you will be ready for a whole range of music-related careers in the creative arts, education and media.
