OCA News: Music MRes proposal
In conjunction with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), we are currently exploring the viability of creating an MRes degree in Music. This would be an online course, part time over 2 years, taught in a cohort with a combination of individual supervision and group sessions.
The course would bring together the expertise from OCA and UCA’s music departments, and provide access to UCA’s recording studio over the summer break.
An MRes is a postgraduate masters in research, and we intend the course to enable students to follow an in-depth exploration of a practice-based area of their choice from composition, performance, orchestration/arrangement, musicology and music technology (potentially also covering composition for screen).
We are currently in a very early stage of our explorations, and seeking feedback from current, former and prospective music students to see if there is a demand for a course such as this. To provide your thoughts, please fill in the survey here [https://forms.gle/MF98owQjhBhMVvKK9] by 1 September.
