Popular Music Studies MLitt

Glasgow-smallThe M.Litt in Popular Music Studies programme at the University of Glasgow aims to introduce and develop a critical understanding of the academic study of Popular Music at postgraduate level. As a relatively new area of academic enquiry, Popular Music Studies draws upon a range of academic disciplines including Sociology, Cultural Studies, Musicology and Literary Studies. Popular Music Studies is inherently multidisciplinary and a range of academic approaches will be adopted throughout the programme. This will provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to critically evaluate the role of Popular Music in contemporary society.

There are three separate degree programmes with a common core. The degrees are Popular Music Studies, Popular Music Studies (Music Industries) and Popular Music Studies (Creative Practice). They have been designed to allow students to specialise according to whether their interest in Popular Music Studies is primarily academic, based on an interest in working in the music industries or as a creator.

Managing in the Creative Industries MLitt

st-andrews-smallThis pioneering degree offered by the University of St Andrews is designed around seven intensive modules that cover the knowledge and skills required for working in the creative industries. It incorporates an understanding of the creative process and the relevant social dynamics, and an appreciation of the demands of managing in complex environments and applying business planning, entrepreneurial skills and financial management to meet them. The course is ideal for students with strong interests in the cultural and creative industries who wish to gain increased management knowledge and skills which will help them understand the business side of the creative endeavour.

The course is supported by academics in the School of Management’s Institute for Capitalising on Creativity (ICC), who are actively engaged in industry-based research across the broad range of creative industries. The course promotes active learning and relies heavily on you to define and investigate your own areas of research.
