Bachelor of Arts (Honours)

Course Information

The programme is a 180 ECTS credit honours programme aimed at school leavers and learners from a variety of backgrounds who have a passion for music and technology. Whilst a love for music is often a powerful motivation, musicianship is not an entry requirement. There is a considerable emphasis on critical listening and audio analysis, investigations of form and aural training as well as instruction in music theory. It is mandatory for learners to examine critically and contextually the works of key practitioners.

The learner’s passion for "all things audio" is developed as he or she is trained to create, track, overdub, mix and master all sorts of sounds daily. The course content features recording techniques, sequencing, sampling, sound processing, live performance technologies, sound design and research skills. The skills gained through this course will allow graduates to move into a variety of careers within the creative industries such as music recording, live sound, post-production and sound design for the web and multimedia.
