DkIT’s postgraduate programmes in Music Performance and Musicology are designed for graduates who are seeking to develop their performance and compositional capabilities and/ or document and develop their specialised knowledge of specific areas of music in Ireland and in Europe. This provides the opportunity for established performers and researchers to formalise and focus their existing expertise within a structure which will place the work in an academic and international context. Regular consultation with and feedback from tutors and mentors, and contact with affiliated professionals in appropriate fields provide the student with a challenging environment within which to critically affirm his/her ability. Application for these programmes is welcomed from students outside Ireland.

 Postgraduate studies in Music to Master and Doctoral levels (by research) are available in several focus areas:

  • Composition
  • Performance Studies (all genres)
  • Traditional Irish music
  • Musicology
  • Music Education
  • Music Technology
  • Music and Community
  • Ethnomusicology

A taught Masters programmes in Music Technology is also offered, with another in Irish Traditional Music Studies planned for 2014. These Masters programmes are 15 months in duration, and are designed for maximum compatibility with European and international Masters programmes. They are compatible with the ECTS credit points system in order to facilitate study abroad and to integrate participation by students from other countries. Application for these programmes is particularly welcomed from non-Irish students for whom the only additional requirement is proficiency in the English language.

 

Applicants are normally required to have a second-class honours degree. However, for mature applicants (over age 23 at time of application) relevant performance, publication and other specialised field experience can be accepted in lieu of a degree.
