    The study of popular music is inherently interdisciplinary and this programme builds on existing expertise in the Department of Music and in the wider faculty. This programme is the first postgraduate degree in popular music in Scotland.


    The programme has been designed to appeal to a range of students. The structure allows for specialisation and the perusal of personal research interests at postgraduate level.

    The first semester comprises of two core courses:

        * Popular music theory
        * Popular music history.

    Thereafter you will specialise. Those pursuing the general Popular music studies strand undertake courses on the music industries and popular music politics.

    Those on the Music industries route undertake a course on the music industries and a music industry placement within the local music industries.

    Those following the Creative practice route undertake a course on creative practice theory and then produce a creative project such as a CD or performance.

    In the summer all students undertake a dissertation of up to 20,000 words.
