Course Summary

Graduate from this BSc degree course with the technical skills and the business management awareness needed to succeed in the audio/music production industry.Behind every live or studio performance lies a fascinating array of modern audio technology. This course gives you an opportunity to learn about the theories and concepts which underpin the use of this equipment, enabling you to work independently, solving practical problems and identifying solutions which help performers, producers and directors get the best results.It is important to note that while this course includes some elements related to artistic matters, it is not an arts-based course. Furthermore, students are expected to engage with other media production theories and techniques where audio plays only a part, albeit a significant one.The advent of new computer-based technology has profoundly altered the way we create, capture and deliver audio content. In order to secure a career in the audio/music-related industries, you will need to gain and demonstrate the competence and confidence to work effectively with this technology.Traditionally, purely technical graduates lack a business and management perspective. Similarly, media studies graduates lack the necessary technical appreciation to work in this field. This programme bridges that gap and you will graduate not only with technical skills and sound/music appreciation, but also the business management awareness to succeed in the audio/music production industry.You will have access to state-of-the-art sound technology as well as staff with extensive knowledge and experience. You will develop skills in media technology, electronics, computer applications and studio technology and be trained in all aspects of live or recorded entertainment. Combined with the practical hands-on experience you will get if you choose to do a work placement, this will give you a significant advantage when it comes to securing your first job.You will have access to industrially-relevent teaching facilities at the Byrom Street campus including a dedicated 'live' recording area, radio and television studios and modern editing facilities.It is important to note that while this course includes some elements related to artistic matters, it is not an arts-based course. Furthermore, students are expected to engage with other media production theories and techniques where audio plays only a part, albeit a significant one. Three strands (production; technology; management) run throughout the course, building knowledge at each level.
