MA Composing for Video Games

Course Description

Composing for video games is one of the most exciting and innovative areas of media composition. It is the only truly interactive and non-linear medium. It’s like scoring a film that hasn’t been edited yet. That presents the most exciting technical and creative challenges. In the highly competitive world of professional composition, a career as a video game composer still offers some of the best opportunities.

The course has been developed in close consultation with the industry, so we are teaching you the skills your future employers want you to have. It’s a strongly project focused course and you will develop an effective workflow, remote working and collaboration and a clear understanding of what’s expected of the game composer as a member of the game audio team. All your tutors are working professional video game composers.

You will work on an inspiring range of games, including commercial releases, provided as part of your course materials. You will learn not only how to create inspiring interactive music but also how to implement your score inside the game using industry standard middleware like FMOD and WWise.

There are plenty of music production schools yet, despite increasing interest in video games soundtracks, almost none who specialize in scoring computer games.

This is currently the only online master’s degree in composing for video games. So if you enjoy working in a vibrant and rapidly evolving area of music production, if you embrace the technical and creative challenges that scoring computer games will involve, then come and join us.

Our MA will bring you the real-world professional tuition you need to lay the solid foundations of a career composing music for video games.
