The Master of Science in Music Technology (MSMT), an Indiana University Degree, is a thirty-credit hour professional graduate degree program training future professionals in Music Technology. We offer on-campus and online options for students to pursue their degree.
The graduate curriculum spans interdisciplinary topics at the intersection of both creative and technical applications of Music Technology. Coursework for this degree includes required Core Courses and Elective Courses within a cognate field.
Core Courses explore synthesis, audio programming, music technology history, audio signal processing, and the physics of sound. Elective Courses, taken inside or outside the department, allow students to invesitage other fields directly related to music technology. These classes may include artificial intelligence and machine learning, acoustics, multimedia design, telematic music, and other hot topics in music technology. Research opportunities may be available for interested students.
The degree culminates with a Master’s Project (MUS N518) or an Internship (MUS N517) that combines a student’s creative, technical, theoretical, and historical knowledge.
