The music dissertation

The dissertation (16,000-18,000 words) is the culmination of your MA in Music and tests your ability to form a sustained argument in clear, logical prose. Within the rules of the MA, youll have considerable freedom in your choice of topic. While youre not expected to make an original contribution to scholarly knowledge, youll be encouraged to work on sources of your own choosing while demonstrating a grasp of work by other scholars in the subject. Your tutor will help you decide on the focus of your dissertation, approve your research proposal and comment on draft sections through the course.
