Course summary

Programme overview

This programme provides professional training in composition for screen media. Taught by staff and guest composers from the professional world, you will develop a strong technological foundation in the subject, along with specialist understanding of television and screen scoring.

The MA is taught within our high-specification composition and recording studios, which have full-time technical support. Students are actively encouraged to build opportunities and networks, both within and beyond the University, for projects in film, animation, documentary and more.

In the first semester, you will study units introducing you to working and recording in studios, and focusing on TV and documentary work. You will also take one elective unit. In the second semester, the programme moves on to critical analysis of media music and film scoring, with an emphasis on longer-term projects for film and TV. This work feeds into original collaborations that you may choose to include in your final portfolio.

The vibrant musical life of the Department of Music provides opportunities for student and professional performance, and we are located at the heart of one of the UK’s leading cities for broadcast, commercial and creative screen media.

Careers

Students who have completed the MA in Composition of Music for Film and Television have taken up careers as music composers, recording managers and compositing supervisors within animation studios.
