These modules are complemented by Composition in Context (Semester 1), in which you will become familiar with the latest developments in composition and with the concept of creative practice as research, and Contemporary Music Practice (Semester 2), in which you will share ideas with musicologists and performers.

Part 2 (MA):

The Part 2 Project, completed over the summer months, normally takes the form of a substantial original composition, or a coherent portfolio of works.
