The FHNW Master of Arts in Composition/Music Theory with an Audio Design Major offers students the possibility to specialise in one of three fields:

  • realisation/performance of electroacoustic music
  • recording/production
  • hardware and software development.

Each of these specialist fields provide students with the requisite skills to pursue a career which requires them to mediate between musicians and electronic media.
