The Sound department’s interdisciplinary approach at School of the Art Institute of Chicago to making sound includes analog and digital studio-based audio craft, computer programming, performance (improvisation and repertoire), sound installation, hardware design, text-based sound work, songwriting, and radio. Students are trained to engage in self critique and pursue technical research at an advanced level. The nature of the work produced is entirely dependent upon the student’s own processes, interests, and obsessions.

- The cornerstone of SAIC's graduate studio program is its focus on tutorially guided studio practice. Each semester in addition to selecting from graduate advisors in the department, you will select from more than 100 graduate faculty advisors at SAIC, representing myriad disciplines, approaches, and intellectual positions.
- Ultimately, it is the student's work that drives the choice of advisor, and both disciplinary and interdisciplinary work is supported and advanced. Faculty from every department in the school serve as graduate advisors, and students are encouraged to work with faculty from outside of their home department in order to expand the critical discourse surrounding their work.
