The PGDip Music and Wellbeing develops a range of skills needed to evaluate and evidence the relationship between musical engagement and wellbeing, while learning competencies directly related to careers in areas including arts therapies, education outreach/music education, community music, and music administration.
The course is built around three core subject-area modules exploring Music, Wellbeing and its Evaluation, Applied Professional Practice, and Empirical Research Techniques. Students will expand their understanding of the topic, learning to identify the methodological and ethical challenges of researching in real-world settings, and developing the empirical skills needed to conduct independent research, drawing on this knowledge to complete a Short Dissertation. The innovative Applied Professional Practice module will provide you with opportunities to work proactively and self-reflectively, and to develop professional relationships with our partner organisations.
The course is ideal for existing practitioners wishing to enhance their skills or undertake continuous professional development, or students wishing to develop their interests by taking a smaller selection of modules than the 180-credit MA Music and Wellbeing course.
