The music industry needs driven, creative and pro-active people that have a broad understanding of the music, sound and performance industry. This exciting new degree has been designed in consultation with music industry experts with this in mind. The flexible nature of the course means that you’re able to study modules across a range of pathways or focus on one pathway depending on your area of interest.
