Shortlist

Course Overview
Behind every live or studio performance lies a fascinating array of modern audio technology. This course gives you an opportunity to learn about the theories and concepts which underpin the use of this equipment, enabling you to work independently, solving practical problems and identifying solutions which help
performers, producers and directors get the best results.

You will have access to state-of-the-art sound technology as well as staff with extensive knowledge and experience. You will develop skills in media technology, electronics, computer applications and studio technology and be trained in all aspects of live or recorded entertainment. Combined with the
practical hands-on experience you will get if you choose to do a work placement, this will give you a significant advantage when it comes to securing your first job.

It is important to note that while this course includes some elements related to artistic matters, it is not an arts-based course. Furthermore, students are expected to engage with other media
production theories and techniques where audio plays only a part, albeit a significant one. Three strands (production; technology; management) run throughout the course, building knowledge at each level.
