Masters degree in Music Technology & Industry explore the technological innovations and business practices within the music industry.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Music or Computer Science.
Depending on your interests, a Masters in this field can be either highly theoretical or highly vocational in nature.
Those wishing to study a more technically experimental course may prefer to opt for an MSc, learning to develop musical equipment and software. For example, you may opt to undertake an MSc exploring the technology behind the production of electronic music and sonic art. This is particularly helpful to those wishing to enter careers such as sound production or editing.
Alternatively, you may opt to scrutinise practices and industry standards within music economics. This could including music licencing and record label mediation, or consumer behaviours. If this is the case, an MA may be more appropriate.
Your experience would make you suitable for music composition and production, record label management, music publishing or roles in academia.
