About the MMT Programme

MMT_concert1.jpgMusic is ever-present in the modern world, and effects people's lives strongly in various ways. Modern research and technology enable us to study such effects of music. Music, Mind and Technology is an international master's degree programme that aims to acquaint you with the main areas of contemporary research into 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 programme is taught by staff from the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Music Research, nominated by the Academy of Finland.

The Master's Degree Programme in MMT is taught in English, and attracts a wide range of students internationally. We have previously admitted students in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014. The average student intake is 13 students per application round.The following Wordle shows the approximate distribution of our former students' nationalities.
