This website has now been superseded by a new version with more up to date information. Please go here now to find out more about the MSc Sound Design. The site you are on will gradually change to become an archive of MSc Sound Design student work.
The University of Edinburgh’s MSc in Sound Design is a 1 year interdisciplinary Taught Masters programme that recently emerged from the University of Edinburgh’s rich expertise in the creative arts and digital media design.
Sound, new media and technology
The MSc in Sound Design is targeted at individuals interested in exploring the domain of sound in the wider context of new media theory and technology. A balance between practical project work and theoretical/critical studies contributes to an inspiring and motivating work environment. Throughout the year, we introduce relevant software tools in a project framework. These include industry-standard tools that are at the centre of professional work in the areas of sound design for film and animation, sound installation, radio, interactive sound, internet audio and others. However, we are also keen to develop new approaches to the question of what sound design is and how these concepts may be applied across a range of designerly, musical and artistic practices.
Collaboration and inter-disciplinarity
The programme benefits from a long standing collaboration between Music and Architecture in the School of Arts, Culture and Environment. This collaboration manifests itself in research, teaching and the sharing of facilities. Interactive sound, digital media design, electroacoustic composition, interactive environments, digital signal processing, web authoring, human-computer-interaction, and artificial intelligence are at the centre of School’s activities and are reflected in the MSc programme
The course is also available part time over 24 months. You can apply online here; www.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate/finder/details.php?id=51
