The artistic production landscape in music for applied media continues to evolve at an overwhelming pace. A globalized, technology driven world not only opens doors to new creative possibilities, but also to new challenges, as well as artistic and business driven expectations. The paradigms are quite different from those of the "legacy" industry of just a few years ago. How does one define success? Who is the composer nowadays and what must s/he do to be competitive in the marketplace and increase her/his chances of achieving success?

The Master of Arts in "Music for Applied Media" follows a modular platform affording graduate students and professionals seeking further training and education access to geographical and scheduling flexibility. Moreover, as technology and trends develop, the modular system allows the program to continuously remain up-to-date and ahead of the curve. The curriculum comprises four fundamental corner stones: Theory and Research, Aesthetics and Artistic Creativity, Hands-on Experience, and Business and Self-Management, including disciplines ranging from Music Aesthetics, History and Composition, to Theory of Sound, Acoustics, Audio, recording, Signal Processing and Synthesis, to IP / entertainment Law, Project and Self-Management, Professionalism, Entrepreneurship, Communications and Ethics -- as such, affording our graduates an expansive learning experience, while working with our international faculty roster comprising established educators and professionals.
