This programme is aimed at those with existing creative and/or professional experience of sonic art, electronic composition or sound design and who wish to pursue further study by researching a particular area of one of these fields.
If you’re looking to redefine your career, open up a new area of creative activity for yourself, or to research and develop ways of thinking about the crafts and theories behind excellent sound design, digital music or sonic art, this course is for you.
Your research practice with us may lead to a portfolio of creative work (an album of music, a series of well-documented sound installations, work on a film), or the portfolio could consist of a series of sonic experiments that are well-documented and explained in the text.
The programme offers structured teaching learning opportunities that enable you to hone aspects of your craft, open up new areas or consolidate skills. In addition we support you to use these tools in a detailed piece of research work where you demonstrate innovate use of them.

- Sound design
