Edinburgh Napier University

Course Information


The Sound Design programme at Edinburgh Napier University is divided into three components: taught classes, work-based learning, and a research project. All of these aspects are intended to improve current methods to sound design for linear and interactive media by combining theory and advanced practice.

The MSc Sound Design can be completed in 18 or 30 months on a part-time basis. Distance learning is used to provide all of the modules.

Furthermore, you will have a thorough grasp of how to evaluate techniques for influencing audience perceptions of linear and interactive media through sound design.
