Months of entry
This MA Composition for Film, TV and Games degree gives you professional training in writing and producing commercially viable music for the media industries. The course is 18 months full time and starts in January.
This course explores specialist compositional techniques, develops your operational understanding of hybrid studio technologies, and gives you advanced productional skills to equip you for a career in industry.
The degree mirrors the industry and emphasises working with ‘real-world’ briefs, meeting deadlines and working in a professional environment with state-of-the-art recording and media technology. You will learn to process critical notes and interpret direction, and to iterate your work and deliver a finished product on time, on budget and on brief.
You will learn to prepare for and run a recording session, discover how to manage music budgets and explore how to navigate the industry as a media composer. You will work collaboratively, building networks with post-graduate directors, screenwriters, editors and producers, and have opportunities to contribute to professional projects.
During the final six months of the programme you will engage with self-directed independent study as you create and produce your major research project. This project is supported through mentoring and staged draft submissions. Your project could be a combination of artefacts, a single large-scale specialist production supported by critical reflective analysis, or a significant and appropriate dissertation piece.
As part of the Department of Creative Industries you will benefit from our industry partnerships with companies including HyperX, DXRacer, Twitch, ARRI, and AVID, and be able to access to industry standard software such as Nuke, Maya and Houdini.
