Research in Music

The Department's research encompasses outstanding activity both in and across  practice-based (composition, performance) and scholarly (musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology) areas, grouped under the themes of Music in Contemporary and Historical Cultures. 87% of our research has been judged ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

This is the result of the national Research Excellence Framework exercise, which assessed research publications and the public impact of research carried out in all universities in the UK, 2015-2021.
