BSc (Hons) Music, Sound and Technology

City, University of London has a long tradition of engagement with music technology. The groundbreaking BSc programme, founded in 1975, was the first of its kind in the UK. The strong roots in electronic music are closely aligned with its historic research strengths in composition, music technology and cross-disciplinary practices. The BSc in Music, Sound and Technology builds on these strengths and adopts a technological and interdisciplinary approach to the study of music and sound, drawing upon experimental, commercial and traditional forms of music creation and dissemination and a range of allied analytical perspectives. It develops a wide range of imaginative strategies in the production of creative and technical work, through experiment, speculation and rigorous investigation.

The programme mobilizes music, sound, science and technology, and cultural studies in order to understand recording and studio production techniques, acoustics, electroacoustics, sound synthesis, and digital signal processing across a broad field of contemporary music and sound contexts. The programme offers students the opportunity to develop a unique blend of skills in digital audio technologies, critical thinking, creative innovation, aesthetic awareness, and entrepreneurialism delivered in a stimulating research-led environment. Music and sound technologies are integral to the creative industries both within the UK and internationally and are at the forefront of a diverse range of commercial, experimental, educational and research developments. The programme responds to the growing demand for flexible music and audio professionals by producing graduates with a unique blend of intellectual, technical and creative understanding.
