Broadcast Audio and Music Technology

Why BSc(Hons) Broadcast Audio and Music Technology? Broadcast sound has a unique place in society. It contributes to the soundtrack of our everyday lives. We hear it in the form of music or supporting in-depth analysis of current affairs, eclectic documentaries, live international events, and literary works in the form of sound-designed drama. Sometimes it is even accompanied by pictures! The broadcast industry recently predicted a 'critical shortfall' in professionals with specialist sound skills. Understanding new technologies is now also vital in addition to traditional techniques. A solid technical knowledge of audio is a requirement for sound specialists in film, radio, TV and games as well as online and mobile media. As a result, numerous opportunities exist for skilled sound professionals with a broadcast background. Why study this course? Developed by leading industry figures and partnered with BBC Radio and Music Operations, this course has been designed to address the predicted skills gap in the broadcast industry. Learning from experienced practitioners, you will develop basic engineering skills and study recording techniques and the technological aspects of music. As you progress, you will learn how to apply your creativity to enhance the sound and quality of audio using technology. This is through building a solid understanding of the science of sound, acoustics and recording.
