The MM program in composition with a concentration in interdisciplinary digital media is designed for students who have interests and skills in unique cross sections of the arts and sciences.
The degree program expands the School of Music offerings to include areas beyond typical music coursework, allowing for additional opportunities for transdisciplinary study and collaboration across the Herberger Institute and beyond. It also allows the School of Music and its students to be actively involved in current developments in the ever-changing field of media.
The state-of-the-art media facilities of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering and its hybrid arts-engineering faculty and courses are invaluable assets to music students, with resources that complement existing and future courses in electronic music.
