I've seen a bunch of questions about sound design/engineering education around the board and have looked into most of the recommended schools and programs. Sadly, most of them seem only to offer courses and curriculum that mirror the school that I went to a few years ago.
Since then I've been out working on various things in various places and I have learned a ton of stuff and developed chops I never thought I'd have. But I feel like there is more out there, more to what we do, than I am able to learn working on my own. I've been studying films and TV, building a library, practicing, but it seems like really slow going.
I'm looking for a more immersive kind of program focused solely on sound creation, manipulation, and design. I hate to use the word, but I want something a little more academic. I've got the basics down, now all I want to do is dig deeper and really figure this thing out.
The MSc programme at the University of Edinburgh looks fantastic and I'm waiting on a reply from the director, but thought I'd ask to see if you guys know of anything else that might be similar (or even better).
I've been accepted into the MSc programme and the University of Edinburgh.
Hugs and High Fives to everyone. If it wasn't for this little board I'd never even have had the idea to apply.
