Course programme

Course overview

As with all our Audio Technology programmes, this degree builds upon Anglia Ruskin's strong reputation in electronic, electroacoustic and computer music and benefits from outstanding facilities in our new Music Centre.

Combined with the study of Creative Music Technology, this programme has more of a focus on music production and course content in both subjects provides an excellent balance between theory and practice allowing you to engage with essential critical and creative approaches to sound and music technology and to apply those creatively to a range of practical projects in both areas.
