The BA (Hons) Audio and Music Production is primarily a vocational course that prepares students for employment in both studio-based and ‘live’ audio environments. The course is unique in the way it covers many aspects of audio production including music production, audio for film and television (including location recording) and post production, as well as live audio for music events and installations.
New and future media constitutes a significant area of study and the delivery of modules related to business practice and entrepreneurship underpin the vocational element of this course. These include business modules that delve into areas such as finance/negotiation and communication, self-employment, intellectual property law and allied rights.
