The Research Master in Musicology offers advanced research training into the study of Western music across different historical periods.


Our Research Master's in Musicology will train you in advanced research while giving you academic insight into the theoretical and artistic principles underpinning music across history and cultures. You will also investigate the contextual circumstances influencing the production, distribution, and reception of music.

The Musicology programme at Utrecht University focuses on Western music from the Middle Ages to the present. Although the emphasis of our teaching and research activity is on historical musicology, there are also courses which bring together both historical and systematic approaches. Interdisciplinary work is central to the programme, and there are particularly strong links with Medieval and Renaissance Studies, New Media & Digital Culture, Gender Studies, postcolonial studies, and Computational Humanities. This programme aims to innovate, while at the same time retaining its links to the traditional musicological research fostered at the University over the past 85 years.
