About Film, TV and Games Composition at University of Chichester

This 18 month full time MA in Film, TV and Games Composition offers you professional training in writing and producing commercially viable music for the media industries.

The MA provides you with the specialist compositional techniques, operational understanding of hybrid studio technologies, and advanced productional skills which will equip you for a career in any one of the major areas of the industry:

Film

TV

Games

Library Music

Advertising

Trailers

You will be taught by working industry professionals and great emphasis is placed upon working to real-world briefs, to real-world deadlines and in a professional environment within a state of the art recording and media technology facility. You will learn to process critical notes and interpret direction, and to iterate your work and deliver a finished product on time, on budget and on brief.

You will be trained how to prepare for and run a recording session, how to manage music budgets and how to navigate the industry as a media composer. You will work collaboratively building networks with post-graduate directors, screenwriters, editors and producers, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to professional projects.

During the final 6 months of the programme students will engage with self-directed independent study as they create and produce their major research project. This project will be supported through mentoring and staged draft submissions and can be a combination of artefacts, a single large-scale specialist production supported by critical reflective analysis, or a significant and appropriate dissertation piece.

A part time option is also available at 24 months plus 6 months independent study.
