Music MA: After you graduate

Skills for the future

A high proportion of Music MA students obtain employment on graduation – either in the music profession itself, in related areas or in teaching – or enrol for further study (eg PGCE, MPhil or PhD). For those students who are already in employment and undertake the course part-time, the award may accelerate promotion and open up new opportunities.

The nature of the Music MA at Kingston – combining theoretical knowledge and practical skills across a broad musical curriculum – equips graduates for a wide range of careers, including:

  • music and arts administration;
  • the music business;
  • school, higher education and instrumental teaching;
  • outreach work and educational workshops;
  • music composition and arranging;
  • professional performance and conducting; and
  • music publishing.

The high level of research and transferable skills you acquire during your studies also makes careers in the wider commercial and business environments available to you.
