Get your music-related business off the ground with our ‘JAMES’ accredited Masters programme and make the most of our industry connections with major and independent record labels.

About the programme

The rise of the ‘new artist model’ - placing emphasis on commercial autonomy by artists and practitioners within the music sector – has created the need for the development of a new music business skillset which this programme addresses. It develops business models within the music industry and uses music as a core asset in developing businesses across all the creative industries and beyond.

Taught at Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the programme covers the creative economy, entrepreneurship, and social media, and involves weekly contributions from a variety of expert practitioners.

You will have access to networks that will provide you with creative, intellectual and business connections. This culminates with the presentation of your business idea to potential investors, where previous funding has secured £2,000 – £30,000.

The Masters of Design (M.Des) in Sound for the Moving Image offers the opportunity for postgraduate students to engage with the craft and creative practice of sound production applied to film, animation, television, new media, electronic games and visual art, as well as equipping students with the tools required to develop a research project within this field. The programme promotes production of original work, through individual or group-based research, that is conceptually-driven, aesthetically challenging and wide-ranging in its use of sound design and music production/compostion.

The programme is delivered via a series of taught workshops, set and elective projects, lecture and seminar based sessions, and self-directed learning. The emphasis of the programme rationale is the interplay between creative practices underpinned by theoretical research, mediated through the craft elements of sound production within a visual environment. Students will be expected to engage in a high level of self-directed learning, research and independent critical reflection, as well as participating in the taught elements of study.

The programme prepares students for entry into a professional sound production environment, to enhance their creative practice with sound and sonic art, or for further academic study by research. Opportunities for further research can be accessed within The Glasgow School of Art or in the wider academic community, and will be driven by the ethos of research underpinning the programme. Current trends and emerging methodologies in professional practice will be defined by a visiting lecturer timetable bringing students into contact with established practitioners within the field of sound for the moving image.

Past students have won a range of awards including recent wins for Scottish BAFTA New Talent, and Sound Design work on award winning films.

Part time study is also available. Please see the Part Time Study Guide for more information.
