Course summary

Develop your own signature sound and production style through this forward-thinking music composition and sound production course. You’ll be able to tailor the MA Sound (Production) course's content to your own style and skills.

The content will cover aesthetic considerations, technology, and techniques utilised in modern music making.

The award is deliberately unbounded by genre, and there are opportunities to take an interdisciplinary approach to sound production, including contemporary electronic music, studio and field recording, experimental music, and sound design for composition. Opportunities for working with visual media are also encouraged.

Overview

The MA Sound (Production) programme is tailored towards individuals who are keen to hone their composition and production skills inside an intertextual and cross-disciplinary framework that pushes at the stylistic boundaries of genre.

The programme encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative working methods with students from the wider music community at Bath Spa, as well as visual media and other departments within the University.

How will I be taught?

Most modules are taught through small-group seminars and workshops, where you’ll benefit from close interaction with tutors and peers.

Careers

You can use the course to develop an individually-tailored portfolio of skills. This will equip you for the current employment landscape, where a combination of traditional music roles is required, alongside broader practice in sound and other media.

The course also provides the breadth necessary for FE and HE teaching in the field, and provides the basis required for PhD research and beyond.

This course also have the exit awards with following course duration: PG Dip full-time: two trimesters (one academic year); PG Dip part-time: four trimesters; PG Cert full-time: one trimester; PG Cert part-time: two trimesters.
