Key learning outcomes The aim of the Master's degree programme is to progress with the knowledge gained from previous bachelor degrees in music or from a related area. To broaden an understanding of historical and systematic musicology, based on research areas of the lecturers from the department, is the main emphasis of the course. To study and research the contemporary music scene and popular music culture is likewise addressed. Understanding and skills from music history and music theory are applied in an editing practice module. Students are encouraged to lead their research independently and present their findings. Firstly, the main aim of the degree is to prepare candidates for the practical usage of their knowledge when starting future prospects in musical institutions such as museums, archives, music journals, television and radio, etc. Graduates should be able to work independently, occupy leading positions and teach in different levels of education (including universities). Secondly, the Master's degree will prepare students for further doctoral studies in Musicology or other related subjects.
