Course summary

Our Integrated Foundation Year for Arts and Humanities will take you through a carefully-designed course to help you to progress confidently onto your undergraduate degree.Arts and Humanities subjects, like Music and Sound Design for Film, Television and Interactive Media, provide key ways of understanding our complex world, its histories, and current debates facing contemporary society. Identity, political and social conflict, our interaction with new digital and genetic technologies, our stewardship of the environment are all issues where the voice of creative and critical thinking are key. Literary texts, films, plays and digital games offer important ways in which societies have debated - and continue to represent - their values and their futures.The Foundation Year provides progressive structures in which you are able to gain knowledge and understanding of approaches to humanities study and your chosen degree subject. All Foundation Year students take ‘Global Perspectives’, then four subject-based courses provide approaches to the study of arts and humanities subjects, giving you critical skills to explore a range of literary, visual, and cultural forms, including plays, films, and digital media. Once you have completed your Foundation year, you will normally progress onto the full degree course, BA Music and Sound Design for Film, Television and Interactive Media. There may also be flexibility to move onto a degree in another department (see end of section, below).BA Music and Sound Design for Film, Television, and Interactive Media at Royal Holloway is a flexible, all-round music degree with a special focus on music and sound for film, TV, games and other media.Studying across both our music and media arts departments, you’ll deepen your core skills in both areas, whilst gaining expertise in music and sound design. You’ll collaborate and work with the next generation of filmmakers and media creatives, designing soundtracks for new projects just as you would in professional practice. Whilst being taught by our expert scholars, composers and sound designers, you’ll have access to our excellent facilities including our professional-grade composition studios.You will join a music department that is among the very best in the country, ranked third in the UK for research quality (REF 2014) and the only music department in the country to hold a prestigious Regius Professorship. Our well connected department means you have the opportunity to make valuable music industry contacts. Our staff are connected with musical networks such Wigmore Hall, the BBC Proms, Royal Opera House.- Learn to compose and create soundtracks for a variety of media and contexts- Graduate with a portfolio of work to get you started on your career- Gain musical and academic skills to become a creative, versatile and employable practitioner- Study music and sound to understand how it works in film, television, games, and beyond- Learn how to collaborate and work as a composer on media projectsPlease note: On successful completion of your Foundation Year, you may be able to choose an alternative pathway which could include a Single Honours, joint or minor degree within Music, or degrees within the Humanities (Classics, Drama, History, English (except pathways with Creative Writing), Philosophy, Comparative Literature and Culture, Liberal Arts). If you'd like to do this, you may take your Foundation Year Department Based Project in one of the other departments in Humanities.From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as we can.
