Pursue your passion for games and interactive media on our industry-focused Creative Music Technology degree.
- Create impact and meaning in sound and music for games and interactive media.
- Develop an impressive industry-facing portfolio of innovative and creative work through your assignments.
- Gain the professional-standard skills, confidence and experience you need to pursue a career in game audio.
In your first year you'll build the foundations to explore and grow your existing creative activities alongside important practical and interpretive skills. You'll explore topics such as audio recording and production, sound design, critical listening, and the relationship between music/sound and game/moving image. In your second year you'll take your skills and creativity into the professional arena. You'll attend a series of high-level industry guest lectures and engage in collaborative opportunities with external professionals, an internship or an industry placement. You'll also be guided toward greater technical competence in the core areas of sound design and critical listening, and undertake a collaborative project with game designers on the Creative Computing (Games) course. In your third year a number of creative and industry-level optional modules will enable you to select a specialised route to support your creative and professional aspirations. You'll combine interactive audio and professional game design in dedicated projects. You'll also design, develop and present a large-scale project, which takes the place of the traditional dissertation on this programme. All third-year assignments are designed to be the foundation of your professional portfolio, and may be used publicly to promote your skills.
The vast majority of assessment is through coursework, with most assignments aiming to develop your professional portfolio. We're also committed to developing your communication skills as a way of empowering you to discuss your own work and the work of others. Tutors are always available to support assignments and particular assessment style preferences if needed.
