This competitive one-year taught Masters degree provides a broad-based foundation in the musical and multimedia applications of acoustics and audio technology.
The Schools of Music and Physics have enjoyed a long and fruitful collaborative relationship here at Edinburgh, with one of the outcomes being this innovative and highly rewarding programme. Taking the science of musical sound as your focus, you’ll work in a cross-disciplinary environment, using basic theory and experimental work to explore the musical and multimedia applications of acoustics and audio technology.
Thanks to the involvement of two well-equipped Schools in this programme, you’ll have access to a comprehensive suite of facilities - everything from up-to-date recording studios and sound desks to an anechoic chamber and reverberation room.
It’s not all science, however: the role of acoustics and technology in the creative arts will also be examined, and you’ll be encouraged to place your work in a cultural context.
