Electronic Music and Sound Design

This major isn’t just about producing music for live audiences. You’ll develop expertise in electronic music composition, sound design and production, programming, and software/hardware instrument design, which could lead to a career in industries like film and television, documentary making, commercials, video gaming and more.

No worries! All you need to study this major is a love of music.

“Hmm, I’m a bit shy. I don’t think I’d like to perform in front of people…”

That’s ok, too! As part of the major, you’ll choose to complete a project like creating an album of electronic works, a sound installation, film score or live performance – if you change your mind.
