This programme provides an opportunity to explore the music industries - with a focus on popular music - from the perspectives of history, research methods and theory, contemporary debates, and work-based learning. Making the most of the city of Glasgow and its vibrant popular music ecosystem including a rich network of venues, festivals, and small to medium music businesses, this degree is distinctive for its emphasis on work-based learning with opportunities for arranged projects with existing music companies and artists on the one hand, or supervised music entrepreneurship projects on the other. WHY THIS PROGRAMME
- Our approach is multidisciplinary: we employ a variety of academic approaches and draw upon the University's expertise in a range of disciplines including sociology, cultural studies, musicology and politics.
- You will be studying in the City of Glasgow with its vibrant and exciting music scene – the UK’s first UNESCO city of music.
- You will benefit from access to our facilities including seminar and practice rooms, a small library, an audio lab, studios, and the University’s concert hall.
