global music master degree

Welcome to GLOMAS

The Nordic Master of Global Music (GLOMAS) is a joint study programme between:

  • Sibelius Academy, Helsinki (Finland) and
  • Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus (Denmark) ...................................................................................................................   NOTE WELL: Students will spend one semester in Helsinki and one semester in Aarhus as part of their first year of study. The remainder of the studies will be spent at each students home institution.
    • GLOMAS is a highly innovative, interdisciplinary programme that is responsive to new needs arising from globalization in the field of music. The programme emphasizes development of “bimusical” performance skills (typically within at least two traditions from different parts of the world), as well as studies of topics relevant to the career of a professional musician, including such areas as musical leadership and instructional skills, project management, and applied research.             
    • As a GLOMAS student, you will enjoy the unique opportunity to study in and experience two Nordic countries, to deepen and develop your artistry and technical proficiency, while simultaneously acquiring an advanced knowledge of the existing Nordic multicultural music scenes. You will also be offered opportunities for fieldwork via partner institutions in the Southern hemisphere (particularly Africa and the Middle East). As a graduate of GLOMAS, you will be well prepared for professional work in the global music field, both in the Nordic market and internationally. The programme leads to a Master Degree of Music (MMus). The common language of the programme is English. The degree programme is developed and implemented as a major project of the Glomus Network.  ...................................................................................................................   NOTE WELL: Students will spend one semester in Helsinki and one semester in Aarhus as part of their first year of study. The remainder of the studies will be spent at each students home institution.
