The University’s mul­ti-direc­tion­al research activ­i­ty is con­duct­ed both in the field of sci­ence (Chair of The­o­ry of Music, Inter­de­part­ment Course in Human­i­ties and For­eign Lan­guages, Chair of Music Edu­ca­tion, Chair of Audi­ol­o­gy and Pho­ni­atrics, Chair of Musi­cal Acoustics and arts (instru­men­tal chairs, Chair of Com­po­si­tion, Chair of Sym­pho­ny and Opera Con­duct­ing, Chair of Vocal Stud­ies, Chair of Sound Engi­neer­ing) by eigh­teen chairs and three institutes.
The sci­en­tif­ic research activ­i­ty cov­ers prob­lems often over­looked by oth­er research cen­tres, includ­ing the psy­chol­o­gy and the­o­ry of music, the­o­ry of music ped­a­gogy and musi­cal upbring­ing, editor’s stud­ies of Fry­deryk Chopin’s body of work, instru­men­tal study, acoustics and musi­cal pho­ni­atrics. Pri­or­i­ty is giv­en to research focus­ing on Pol­ish music (Chopin’s work) and the the­o­ry of 20th cen­tu­ry music.
Oth­er issues with­in the scope of the researchers’ inter­est are: musi­cal edu­ca­tion in Poland; works of com­posers and per­form­ers of ear­ly and con­tem­po­rary music; recep­tion and per­cep­tion of music; per­cep­tion of tone, pitch and loud­ness of sound; aur­al mem­o­ry; analy­sis of the human voice and res­pi­ra­to­ry organ; musi­cal psy­cho­met­rics and psy­chodi­ag­nos­tics; mod­ern means of gen­er­at­ing and trans­mit­ting sound; music teach­ers’ pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment; musi­cal devel­op­ment with­in the human lifetime.
The sys­tem of con­tin­u­ous and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research includes basic and applied works aimed at sup­port­ing the needs of musi­cal edu­ca­tion and the country’s cul­ture and econ­o­my. These works are con­duct­ed in the fol­low­ing fields: study of fine arts, psy­chol­o­gy, ped­a­gogy, med­ical sci­ences, engi­neer­ing and envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, soci­ol­o­gy and phi­los­o­phy. The inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research teams are made up of musi­cians, music the­o­reti­cians, plas­tic artists, psy­chol­o­gists, ped­a­gogues, physi­cians, phys­i­ol­o­gists, physi­cists, engi­neers and IT spe­cial­ists. The results of their work, merg­ing such research fields as sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy and arts, have been received with much inter­est by sev­er­al nation­al and inter­na­tion­al research centres.

Research and Pub­lish­ing The Research Unit sched­ules and coor­di­nates research work in coop­er­a­tion with oth­er FCUM units, rais­es research funds and man­ages research bud­gets. Mem­bers of the unit par­tic­i­pate in organ­is­ing sem­i­nars and con­fer­ences, col­lects data for assess­ment of aca­d­e­m­ic work and pre­pares research analy­ses. The Research Unit’s activ­i­ties also include co-imple­men­ta­tion of research projects fund­ed by the Euro­pean Union.
