PhDs in Music.

Staff often have research interests in issues that cross regional boundaries; see the Department Staff page for a summary of their interests, and select the name of a lecturer for further details of their individual research specialisms and activities. Whatever its regional origin, music is studied as a cultural phenomenon, and also from analytical and historical perspectives. Instrumental and vocal, sacred and secular, art and popular, traditional and modern musical forms are all of equal interest. Research methods employed include fieldwork, interview, archive research, recording and filming, performance, transcription and analysis, and composition. Entry requirements Postgraduate students of the Department come from a wide variety of backgrounds in the UK and from overseas. Most are performers of music as well as researchers; applicants are evaluated individually on the basis of their background and academic achievements. Applicants should normally possess a Master’s degree, or equivalent, in Music, Ethnomusicology or other relevant discipline. Applicants who are accomplished performers or teachers, or who work in the music industry, may have alternative qualifications, and are encouraged to apply. Research training and coursework All research students are required to follow a course of research training held in the department in their first year. In addition they may be required to take one or more postgraduate courses, such as the MMus core course Ethnomusicology in Practice, and/or a language course, depending on their prior qualifications and the requirements of their research project. They are also expected to attend department research seminars; and they may be recommended to attend research training workshops elsewhere in SOAS, or in institutions such as the Institute for Musical Research (http://music.sas.ac.uk/training). See “Structure” for more information about the place of research training in the structure of the programme. Supervision Each research student is allocated a Supervisory Committee, comprising the First Supervisor, who will be primarily responsible for guiding the student’s research; the Second Supervisor, who is available for periodic consultation; and the Third Supervisor, normally the Research Tutor. The Committee as a group periodically assess the student’s progress (see Structure). Research students are welcome to consult any members of the Department of Music about their research. Where the project is inter-disciplinary, the Second Supervisor can be a member of another department. Funding For links to available sources of funding for research see: http://www.soas.ac.uk/registry/scholarships/ Students from outside the UK may be eligible for financial support from their country of origin.

In Year 4, you may apply for permission to work away from SOAS (this does not affect your fees). Part-present or Distance Learning research degrees are not currently available. How to apply If the subject you are thinking of researching coincides with the research interests of one or more members of academic staff, you are welcome to contact them to discuss your project before applying.
