Content

This programme is targeted at individuals interested in exploring the domain of sound in the wider context of new media theory and technology. It is strongly interdisciplinary and course content ranges from the study of film sound to interactive audio design, sound installation and web design.

This programme will provide you with knowledge, skill and understanding in a range of sound design situations both commercial and experimental. Graduates of the programme will be armed with professional, practical, analytical and critical skills to take into sound-related industries or on towards further academic study such as a PhD.

The Reid Studio is our new surround-sound mixing and production studio, and our Russolo Room offers industry-standard recording equipment and software. Our Sound Lab, which hosts a number of fully equipped workstations, is available for your use.

Entry Requirements

A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a relevant subject.

If you do not meet the academic entry requirements or if you do not have a sound-related degree, we may still consider your application if you have significant industry experience supported by a portfolio. Your portfolio can range from an essay on sound to a small collection of sound recordings, performances or documentation of a sound-based project, such as an installation, film or animation.
