Study existing research and theories in the psychology of music while continuing to follow your own musical interests on this course.
You’ll explore topics on the social, developmental and cognitive psychology of music, considering what research from these traditions reveals about a range of musical behaviours including performance and listening. Multidisciplinary in nature, this course draws influences from fields including psychology, musicology, sociology and cultural studies, and combines both theoretical and empirical approaches.
This course also enables you to develop your knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods. You’ll also build your research skills while learning to critically evaluate studies in the applied psychology of music in areas such as music education, therapy, science and technology.
You’ll complete a dissertation as your major project and have the opportunity to select optional modules in other areas of music, such as musicology or performance, undertake an international research project, or explore music and wellbeing or audience engagement and impact. You’ll gain an insight into the importance and role of research in music psychology to prepare you for further research or a wider range of careers.
