About

Do you have a passion for music and would like to learn more about cutting-edge technologies in a unique two-campus setting? The Master in Music, Communication and Technology at University of Oslo is the one for you

Overview

This Master in Music, Communication and Technology at University of Oslo will give you the personal skills and technical tools required to work out solutions to contemporary societal challenges in international and interdisciplinary teams.

Music has the ability to move people, physically and emotionally, and music technologies are unique in their focus on providing high-quality aesthetic experiences. Speaking with others through cables is not the same as meeting face to face, and playing music through screens and speakers is different from being in a real club setting. In the Music, Communication and Technology (MCT) Master's programme you will explore the possibilities (and limitations) of existing audiovisual communication, and will learn to develop new technologies, with a musical touch.

The candidate:

  • has advanced knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of music technology, with specialized insights in technologies aimed at real-time (musical) communication
  • has thorough knowledge of acoustics, music cognition, machine learning, and human-computer interaction
  • can apply the knowledge to new areas, such as sonic interaction design, audiovisual communication, auditory displays, virtual reality, music information retrieval, and distributed multimedia systems
  • can analyze academic problems on the basis of the historical development, technological limitations, cognitive foundations and aesthetic implications of music-related communication technologies

Programme Structure

Courses include: 

  • Physical-virtual communication and music 
  • Entrepreneurship for MCT
  • Research methods, tools and issues in MCT
