Music Technology degrees abroad

Music technology is an interactive field of study that explores how different technological tools and devices are used to compose, record, and produce music.

As a music technology student, you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of music technology. As well as fine-tuning your critical listening, creative thinking, and collaboration skills, you’ll get to grips with a range of industry-standard equipment. You’ll put what you’ve learned into practice by producing original music across a variety of genres.

Studying abroad is an invaluable opportunity to see how musical traditions and trends differ from country to country. Encountering new styles and genres will spark your creativity and transform you into a more versatile and adaptable professional. Immersing yourself in the global music industry will also help prepare you for a successful international career.

Music Technology program structure

You can study music technology as an associate, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree. Two-year associate degrees provide students with a solid technical and theoretical grounding in the subject. They’re an excellent means of progressing into entry-level employment, an apprenticeship, at-home music production, or further study.

Studying a bachelor’s degree in music technology over three or four years is the most popular choice among undergraduate students. Programs can be offered as either a BA or BSc. Although what’s covered in these two classifications will be pretty similar, you’ll probably take more mathematics and physics classes on a BSc course.

Most bachelor’s programs will encourage students to complete an optional 12-month placement after their second year of study. Placements are one of the best ways to gain industry experience and consolidate your knowledge.

If you’re still hungry to learn more, you can go on to pursue a postgraduate qualification in music technology. Master’s programs can be completed over one or two years, followed by a PhD lasting between four and seven years.

Your timetable will largely be made up of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and hands-on workshops. Typical assessment methods include practical projects, essays, portfolios, presentations, and performances.

The precise content of your music technology degree will depend on your university and country of study. However, most programs will cover these fundamentals:

  • Recording and production techniques
  • Creative music technologies
  • Studio theory and practice
  • Creative computing for music and sound
  • The fundamentals of sound
  • Music for media
  • Composition practice
  • Digital audio
