ThinkSpace Education, a leading online music school, has announced the launch of three new master’s degree programs.
In partnership with the University of Chichester, Composing for Video Games (Master of Arts), Sound Design for Video Games (Master of Arts) and Game Music and Audio (Master of Fine Art) will all launch in September and are the first online master’s degree programs focusing on the field of game music and sound design.
According to the course organisers, the suite of online postgraduate courses will prepare sound designers and composers with the real-world creative and technical skills that future employers are looking for.
Guy Michelmore, ThinkSpace Education’s course director and an EMMY nominated film, games and television composer, said: ‘There are plenty of music and sound production schools yet, despite increasing interest in video game soundtracks, almost none who specialise in game music and audio. We’re excited to offer the first online master’s degrees in composing and sound design for video games.’
Thinkspace Education is the only school staffed and tutored exclusively by professional working composers and sound designers, with video game franchise credits including Assassin’s Creed, Bioshock, Dragon Age, Fallout, Mass Effect and Tomb Raider.
Enrollment is now open to postgraduate students at thinkspaceeducation.com.
