Program description

Sound (Design) MA

The course delivers a mixture of advanced technical skills related to sound design and audio post production for film and other visual media. It also provides creatively-oriented insights into contemporary sound design practice and encourages students to push the boundaries of the field. Subject areas include:

  • Sound sculpting, processing and synthesis
  • The language and aesthetics of sound design
  • Storytelling and dramaturgy

This is in addition to a wide range of more conventional post-production skillsets such as:

  • Sound editing
  • Foley and field recording
  • Production workflows
  • Track-laying
  • Dubbing mixing
  • Surround sound and VR audio

You won’t be expected to cover all of these areas. You’ll be able to use the course to develop an individually-tailored portfolio of skills, experience and top-level work across them.

MA Sound (Design) is part of a suite of postgraduate courses available across music and sound, operating alongside "sister" pathways in Sound (Production) and Sound (Arts), which allow further specialism in these areas.

Admission requirements

Entry requirements for our postgraduate courses vary. We are generally looking for a good honours degree or equivalent.

Some courses also require an interview or the submission of a portfolio of work.
