The courses, taught in a music school are diverse as a result of the many different music fields, on which your study programme can be specialised.  Although, there are some courses, such as “music history” and “music theory”, which could be common for different musical Masters programmes. 

Degrees in a music school

Music departments and music schools award graduates with several different Masters degrees. Typically, you could get a Master of Music degree, if you have studied music performance or music pedagogy and education. If you have obtained your Masters in the fields of music theory, musicology or history of music, you would rather be awarded as a Master of Arts or even Master of Music Theory.

However, the awards vary by countries and educational institutions, which is why we recommend you to check the details with the musical school you are interested in.
