WHAT IS Music Psychology Training?
Music is ever-present in the modern world and affects people's lives
strongly in various ways. Many people spend a considerable amount of
time daily listening to music, or playing a musical instrument. Music
can affect and regulate our emotions, and can be used as a therapeutic
medium. It has also been found to be important for the development of
children. Modern research and technology enable us to study such
effects of music.
Music Psychology training consists of two Master’s Degree Programmes,
and the students are required to choose one or the other when applying
for. Both programmes lead to the Master of Arts degree. They consists
of 120 ECTS credits requiring two academic years of full-time study.
The language of instruction is English.
a) Music Mind and Technology Master’s Degree Programme aims to
acquaint you with the main areas of contemporary research of music
perception and cognition, to familiarize you with the methods and
equipment used in various applications of music technology, and to
provide you with the skills needed for designing, executing and
reporting empirical investigations. The latest technology, and modern
studio facilities, will be utilized on this programme.
b) Music Therapy Master’s Degree Programme aims to acquaint you with
the main areas of contemporary music therapy and music psychotherapy
research, theory and clinical practice - in particular on psychiatric
