Music and Wellbeing MA at the University of Leeds

A new Music and Wellbeing MA at the University of Leeds starts in September 2021.

This distinctive course by the University of Leeds offers opportunities to develop the critical and analytical techniques needed to evaluate and evidence the relationship between musical engagement and wellbeing.

You’ll gain skills that are directly related to careers in areas including arts therapies, education, community music, music administration, policymaking, and research impact employment or to continue to PhD study.

Your understanding of the topic will be expanded and you’ll develop the skills needed to conduct independent research while learning to identify the methodological and ethical challenges of researching in real-world settings.

The core Applied Professional Practice module will provide you with opportunities to take a proactive and self-reflective role in your work, developing professional relationships with the University of Leeds partner organisations.

Your major project will be a dissertation on an aspect of music and wellbeing of your own choosing, and you can pursue an optional module in another area of music such as music psychology, musicology, performance, or arts management.

University of Leeds staff have substantial experience working in the area of music and wellbeing, and they also have a variety of excellent facilities to support your learning including rehearsal, performance and practice spaces, and studios for sound recording.

Additionally The University of Leeds has good working relationships with a range of prestigious arts organisations: they host BBC Radio 3 concerts, Leeds Lieder and the Leeds International Piano Competition, as well as enjoying a close partnership with Opera North and many others in a city with a thriving music and cultural scene.
