Through its focus on musical infrastructure, Utrecht University's Master's programme Applied Musicology will equip you with the specific knowledge and skills required to operate as a musicologist within the international musical industry. The programme utilizes reflective training in both current and innovative approaches in musicology, through which you will learn to apply academic musicological skills to the day-to-day challenges in a musical life.
Our Master's programme in Applied Musicology was designed in direct dialogue with top institutions within the musical infrastructure in the Netherlands and beyond; it does not discriminate between classical and popular music. The curriculum builds on knowledge and skills gained through a Bachelor's in Musicology, with emphasis on both historical musicology and the relation of music with other media.
Utrecht University's Musicology programmes have a long-standing international reputation for excellence. They attract a diverse community of students with a Bachelor's in Musicology background, as well as other culture historical profiles, and also students trained at conservatories. This pluriformity is welcomed and enriches classroom training by providing students with an international perspective during their studies.
Through the expertise of UU's instructors and an extensive network of alumni programme consultants, the programme is firmly rooted in musical infrastructure. Guest lectures from key figures are regularly scheduled. In addition, internships with leading institutions (concert halls, ensembles, agents, media, etc.) are part of the programme.
