Students will attend a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical sessions supported with occasional input from external professionals in the field of sound design and related areas.
Students who follow this programme will:
develop specific knowledge and obtain a broadly based foundation in sound design technologies
explore the use of existing computer-aided sound design techniques in a creative way
be able to analyse and critically think about sound and its role in a wider creative arts environment
develop understanding of the scope and limitations of computer applications in sound design
engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration in the context of audiovisual practice
discover new creative uses of advanced technologies
foster the ability to work cooperatively in groups in the context of design
develop an understanding of the potential for new technologies
Thanks to the rich cross-disciplinary course of study this programme provides, you will graduate with advanced skills in multimedia, audio production, post-production and other digital technologies which are applied to sound design. These skills will allow you to take on commissions in professional sound design, or pursue your own creative path.
You will also gain a wide variety of transferable skills, such as research, teamwork and communication that will increase your employability.
