Sound Arts

Cover the spectrum of music, sound and technology appropriate to a wide range of work in existing and emerging sectors. Offers broad coverage while facilitating individual specialism. Covers music in any genre alongside other areas of creative practice in sound. Runs alongside Sound Production and Sound Design MAs, with options across programmes.

Course modules

Most modules are taught through small-group seminars and workshops, where you'll benefit from close interaction with tutors and peers. The Major Project and parts of the other modules are taught through individual tutorials where the focus will be entirely on your own practice. In the Skills Portfolio we make use of a 'flipped classroom' model where you work through online materials at your own pace, supported by intensive troubleshooting sessions with tutors.

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed entirely on coursework. The majority of this will be practical and creative work, including the dissertation-equivalent Major Project. Some practical projects are accompanied by short informal written assignments, and for the Research Methodology and Context module you'll produce a more substantial paper.
