Course summary

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Sound and Music for Games, but don’t meet the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.

The sound and music industry is transforming. Traditional careers are adapting to include creative industries that require skills in sound and music production. The broadcast, film, theatre, games and immersive experience industries are growing and thriving.

We see opportunities for multi-skilled, digitally fluent, dynamic and adaptable sound and music creators, who can initiate and present innovative ideas in modern and engaging ways.

The BA (Hons) Sound and Music for Games is part of a suite of programmes for applied practice in professional industry contexts. The key features of these programmes are: A focus on Ideas, Creative Enterprise and Collaboration, Portfolio of Transferable Skills, Professional Industry Projects

You will develop and apply a range of specialist technical and creative skills in sound and music production, working collaboratively within interdisciplinary projects modelled on professional practice in the games industry.

The principal focus of the Sound and Music for Games will be Sound Design, Music and Studio Recording and Production, interactive music and sound design and programming, with some elements shared with other programmes in the suite.

Sound and Music programmes at the University of East London develop an existing base of core skills in sound and music creation and production and apply these to specific industrial contexts in collaborative projects that simulate professional practice, and which integrate with the games industry in live projects.

The BA Sound and Music for Games programme will develop a core set of skills in sound design, music production, audio programming and interactive design, and will also develop transferrable skills (linked to University Core Competencies and the Career Passport) for the creative industries.
