2nd application phase in master 1 and master 2 !
License 3 (Bachelor) Musicology Course Interpreter in medieval music
Objectives: Developing deep skills in medieval music based on the interactivity of practical and theoretical approaches, opening up to the fields of musicology and research-creation. In terms of musical medievalism, the emphasis is on the modal conception of this music, both from the point of view of untempered scales and of rhythm and on the non-harmonic understanding of polyphony. The approach is primarily vocal but instrumental practice is welcome. This 3rd year license course allows students to begin a specialization in medieval music and musicology.
Beginner students in medieval music performing are welcome.
The teaching is carried out by artist-researchers and teacher-researchers.
- Master Musicology Course Research, practice and creation in medieval music

Master 1 and Master 2 Musicology course Research, practice and creation in medieval music
Developing deep skills in medieval music based on the interactivity of practical and theoretical approaches, opening up to the fields of musicology and research-creation.
MUSICOLOGY AND RESEARCH-CREATION
Interactivity irrigates and connects the different approaches to medieval music according to the modalities of research, practice and creation.
Musicological research, approached in its specific field, is also nourished by other fields of thought such as history, sociology, anthropology, systems, ethno-scenology… In terms of musical medievalism, the emphasis is on the modal conception of this music, both from the point of view of untempered scales and of rhythm ; and on the non-harmonic understanding of polyphony.
A diversity of medieval corpuses are approached, opening the field of practice to different registers and issues. The approach to the corpus is above all vocal while integrating the instrumental work and is done directly on the facsimiles of the manuscripts to question the different notations. The practice extends to archaeo-luthery, in resonance with organological research.
An annual creation project by the students, accompanied by a team of professionals, makes it possible to concretely approach the processes and approaches of creation. The design and manufacture of a spectacular form allows students to confront individually and collectively the issues and problems of the artistic and administrative direction of a professional artistic project. This project gives rise to public performances, particularly as part of the Les Marteaux de Gellone festival.
This master’s degree, in partnership with the International Center for Medieval Music, aims to build a solid musical and musicological culture, skills as a researcher and musician as well as the acquisition of a critical approach.
At the end of the year, students must both defend a scientific research dissertation and present individual and collective artistic proposals to validate the Master 1 and Master 2 courses.
KNOW-HOW AND SKILLS
- Acquiring the tools and methods of research in musicology
- Acquiring the skills of interpreter-researcher specific to these musical corpuses
- Engaging in a research-creation process
- Understanding the environment, organization and functioning of cultural and artistic circles,
- Develoing analytical, creative and critical thinking skills,
- Acquiring writing skills.
A strong feature of this Master’s course, the courses are led by artist-researchers, specialists in the corpus they transmit, and craftsman-researchers (archeo-instrument makers). This posture is defined by a triangulation between three research methods that complement each other:
- personal research around musical and musicological issues
- research in dialogue with university researchers
- bringing this research into play in interaction with students as part of the training
FURTHER STUDIES AFTER THE MASTER
Obtaining the Master’s in Research, Performing and Creation in Medieval Music allows enrollment in a PhD in Arts specializing in Musicology (according to the provisions of the host Doctoral School).
Students can also register for the preparation of the aggregation competition for teaching music.
- Public service competitions (cultural and education sector)
- Careers as a singer or instrumentalist as a soloist or within specialized ensembles
- Professions of cultural mediation and musical heritage (libraries, media libraries, museums, etc.)
- Music professions (promotion, distribution, production, artistic creation, programming, criticism, etc.)
