Graduate Programmes

UCD School of Music offers graduate programmes at Masters and PhD level. 

Postgraduate Study in Music

The School of Music is one of the leading centres for graduate musical study in Ireland and a QS World Top 100 Performing Arts department. Our graduate programmes give students the opportunity to work with scholars of international standing in the School's core disciplines of historical musicology, ethnomusicology and composition. The MMus (taught Master’s) degree furnishes students with the core intellectual tools for pursuing musical research and composition, while also encouraging independent scholarship. The PhD and MLitt (research Master’s) programmes afford the chance to complete a major research project under the supervision of an expert in the field, or alternatively a composition portfolio.
