Post-Production with Sound Design

The MA/MSc in Post-production with Sound Design is designed to give a solid grounding in the latest post-production systems and techniques as well as a rich understanding of digital sound design creation for contemporary media. The programme is unique, as it allows students the choice of focusing on production-orientated work (for an MA degree) or on formal research into the technologies behind post-production systems (for an MSc degree). As a result, graduates of the programme are technically informed practitioners or researchers, with a complete understanding of the creative process.
