BDes (Hons) Sound for the Moving Image is a two year degree programme starting in September 2018. Applications are welcomed from students entering directly into year 3, with articulation from HND programmes at college, or from mature students with relevant experience. The programme creates a learning environment for students to develop their creative and craft skills in sound for the moving image. The programme recognises the increased recognition of the importance of sound and moving image as part of the Scottish creative, cultural and commercial landscapes, and taps into the worldwide increase in media production for an increasingly diverse and divergent audience through multiple digital distribution platforms. Students will develop detailed theoretical, practical and technical knowledge in sound production for visual media. The programme will promote the production of aesthetically challenging work that explores the limits of sound manipulation and evaluates perceptions of sound design and production for the moving image. The programme will stimulate students in the development of original content within the field of sound production and post-production for the moving image. The programme will also provide a grounding in the professional practice of sound production for visual environments, such as film, animation, television, online, interactive media and games, theatre and art installations. It is expected that graduates will find employment as audio professionals and practitioners in key creative industries. Graduates of the Masters programme in Sound for the Moving Image have progressed to a range of careers in audio-visual arts, game development and film and television.
