The university master’s degree in Music as an Interdisciplinary Art, which is taught at the Faculty of Geography and History, covers theoretical and practical aspects of music that are generally overlooked in the academic world: the association between music and cultural activities such as visual and audio-visual art and literary creation; music management; and classical or popular music concerts. This unique academic approach is combined with the opportunity to carry out placements in organizations and institutions involved in various aspects of music, to further the students’ professional development.

The master's degree in Music as an Interdisciplinary Art, which is taught jointly by the University of Barcelona, Rovira i Virgili University (URV), the School of Music of Catalonia (ESMUC), and the Milà i Fontanals Institution of the Spanish National Research Council (IMF-CSIC), is a unique course; it focuses on the role of sound as a catalyst for wider cultural activity. Students therefore examine the presence of music and its many stakeholders (creators, managers, audience) in contemporary cultural life. Subjects cover theory (dramatic composition, musical anthropology, musical thought, and music analysis) and practice and performance in various areas (electronica, jazz, pop, music and image, neuromusic) to give students a complete overview of music as a living cultural and creative phenomenon. In addition to the range of subjects, students will contribute to the creation of an interdisciplinary show, attend debates on interdisciplinary topics, and carry out work placements with companies in the sector, giving them greater insight into the many facets of music as a professional activity.
