Thinking and acting as a cultural critic, that is to say applying a reflective and critical approach to society through its past and present cultural and artistic output, is the main objective which students of the Master Degree in Archaeology and History of Art: Musicology are called upon to achieve. In this way, at the end of their programme, students will have an active and integrated expert understanding of a select corpus of disciplinary and multidisciplinary knowledge (awareness, terminology, issues, methods, conceptual frameworks) which is indispensable in order for them to become professionals in the different fields of musicology. Students will be able to study and analyse a work, a corpus, or a particular theme and undertake personal, objective and methodical research dealing with a significant quantity of information in accordance with disciplinary methods and by using a systematic and rigorous approach. Students will demonstrate the capacity to define a research subject and pose a research question, and will show their ability to focus upon a given question on the basis of quality heuristics and by using the principles of documentary criticism. Students will learn to operate independently by managing research and an individual project, and more generally by keeping their knowledge updated. The musicology tutors thereby wish to train actors who are receptive to the cultural and socio-professional worlds who are capable of understanding the cultural world and integrating into it easily and efficiently.
On successful completion of this programme, each student is able to :
1.2. Encourage society to understand the importance of its material and audio output by making it aware of the conservation and development of its heritage, while being open to artistic manifestations of modern cultures.
1.3. Demonstrate intellectual independence in reasoning, apply a critical eye to both material and intellectual output over a wide variety of collections (typological, chronological, geographical, etc.).
1.4. Think and act in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary way by being open to other conceptual and methodological frameworks with a view not only to gathering knowledge but also to being able to form hypotheses themselves.
2.2. Attain specialist knowledge in either of the specific fields or supplementary fields of study.
2.3. Starting from the basis of the knowledge acquired, contribute to the development of new hypotheses in the fields of musicology, in connection with professional practice in these fields.
3.2. Be capable of relocating the above in their historical and socio-cultural context and understanding the interactions and challenges affecting them.
3.3. Reflect upon the contribution of new methods and develop these methods with a view to adapting them to various different situations.
4.2. Carry out documentary research on a subject: collate a large quantity of data (secondary and primary sources) and select those that are most relevant.
4.3. Analyse a significant quantity of data: describe, organise and summarise it in a systematic and rigorous manner. Criticise and challenge the documents.
4.4. Examine the body of data in a relevant manner: apply disciplinary methodologies to it while also reviewing it using their own reflective and critical eye, developing a new, individual assignment relating to that issue.
4.5. Communicate the results of their research in a scientific and pedagogic manner.
5.2. Plan and manage their own path, making individual choices relating to their training.
5.3. Develop their intellectual curiosity: be interested by and open to developing perspectives and change, both as regards knowledge but also in relation to the methods for mediating that knowledge.
5.4. Conduct their own training: independently manage the acquisition and updating of their knowledge and know-how.
5.5. Manage their time and plan the steps necessary in order to carry out a project.
6.2. Integrate smoothly into a socio-professional environment.
6.3. Forge links and interact with actors in the worlds of culture and heritage.
6.4. Collaborate efficiently within a team, adapting and negotiating ways of working.
