Our ethos is that this cross-disciplinary programme will foster a combination of technical know-how and confidence with creativity and musicality. A Master of Arts award or Master of Science Award can be chosen depending on the students pathway through the Programme.

The programme takes full advantage of the CSM's state-of-the-art performance spaces, Recording Suite (Live, Control, and Editing rooms), Electronic Music Studio, dedicated laboratories and many performance opportunities.
A cross-faculty body of experienced lecturers and practitioners in the field delivers the programme. Learners from different disciplines will be able confidently and competently to interact with, and find employment within, several fields of study and industry. Adding this training to the opportunity to work with some of the finest up-and-coming musicians in Ireland, from all walks of life, will result in an exceptional Music Technologist.

The first two semesters (September-January and January-June) each have a 30-credit load, delivered through a combination of 5-credit mandatory and elective modules. Independent work is undertaken over the final June-August period in respect of a 30-credit project. The type of award, MA or MSc, depends on the nature of the project undertaken during this period.
Applications are invited by way of a submitted application form and shortlisted candidates will be interviewed. Normally, an Honours 2.2 Degree in a cognate area is required and work-based experience is an advantage. Recognition is given for relevant prior learning where the applicant does not have a relevant Honours Degree.
