The artistic and production landscapes involving music and media continuously 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 oriented 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 remain up-to-date and ahead of the curve. The curriculum comprises: Theory and Research, Aesthetics and Artistic Creativity, Hands-on Experience, and Business and Self-Management -- including disciplines such as Music Aesthetics, History, Composition, Theory of Sound, Acoustics, Audio and Recording, Signal Processing, Synthesis, IP / entertainment Law, Project 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.
Target group Composers, musicians, sound and media artists, music producers, and musicologists interested in music for film, TV, online media, interactive games, and sonic branding for businesses and commercial applications
