The Inter-university Master's Degree in Music as an Interdisciplinary Art provides a systematic academic approach to the interrelation of music and other arts. The curriculum fosters contact with the country's music institutions, specialised archives and research centres. Also, through masterclasses and internships, it brings students closer to companies that promote the many professions involved in the music and theatre business, media and music journalism. This master prepares students for future doctoral theses and promotes and encourages creative confluence using a multidisciplinary approach and unique subjects. It also offers real spaces where students can share their experiences as musicians, with the multicultural reality which has always been the hallmark of the master's degree.

Objectives of the master’s degree:

  1. To enable graduates in the Humanities, Social Sciences and other related disciplines to work in theoretical and practical fields relating to music.
  2. To develop specific knowledge in all areas of music, musical thought, audiovisual media and management.
  3. To provide humanities and social sciences students with professional or research training in the musical interdisciplinarity, the relationship between music, literature, visual arts, audiovisual arts and dance and how this is projected in the various fields of contemporary artistic culture.
  4. To study the process of reflection as a thought process deriving from sensitivity, the sociology of music, the anthropology of music and the psychology of music.
  5. To analyse the processes that enable music to permeate the media, the music specifically created for these media, the nature of journalism and music criticism and their relevance to society.
  6. To promote specific research into music, both in interdisciplinary fields of thought and in cultural practice.
