Master in Music - Máster en Música
The MA Music is a taught postgraduate course for musicians interested in developing their music practice and increasing their profile as a professional artist.
The MA Music tests ways of taking existing practice in different directions and then carrying out projects in which this work is presented to the public. The course is a space to try out bold, new ideas and an opportunity to gain the real-world skills required by professional musicians.
Students on the course build a portfolio of music whilst developing skills of great use to a professional musician including project management, managing and archiving public events, self-promotion, and managing people and budgets. Creative work can be presented as part of Winter Sound, Future Sound and other events run by the music staff and students of UCLan but support is also given in seeking other opportunities to present music to a wider audience and in developing an online presence.
Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits and in the light of the nature and scope of the programme or work proposed. Informal enquiries are welcomed.

Receipt of a 2.2 degree, or higher from a British university

Professional experience in the field or a related field in their home country
