Course content

Writing music for the moving image requires a unique combination of technical and creative skills. You will gain a solid grounding in the theories, techniques and practices essential for contemporary film and television music production.

You will have access to a suite of high-quality, professional music studios approved by JAMES, the accrediting body of the Music Producers Guild and the Association of Professional Recording Services.

After developing your composition skills in a range of genres, you will have the chance to work with colleagues from other media courses to further develop your portfolio of work; for example, you could find yourself working alongside student filmmakers from our University's Northern Film School.

You will also work on projects with award-winning composers from the film and television industry, and our links with local and national music, arts and festival organisations will ensure you have plenty of opportunities to sharpen your practical skills.
