CALL: Masters Program in Music, Communication, & Technology

The two largest universities in Norway, the University of Oslo (UiO) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), are now accepting applications for the Master’s programme “Music, Communication and Technology” (MCT).

Music, Communication & Technology is a different Master’s programme. Music is at the core, but the scope is larger. You will be educated as a technological humanist or humanistic technologist; with technical, reflective and aesthetic skills. Communication and interaction in our digital age is at the core of the MCT programme. It is unique in that the student group is physically split between Oslo and Trondheim, 500 kilometres apart. A high-quality, network-based multimedia connection allows for discussions, socialising and music making. As a student you will get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art facilities, including motion capture systems, music production tools, and large loudspeaker arrays. The theoretical components include acoustics, music cognition, machine learning, physical computing, web technologies and human-computer interaction. As a student you will take on project work in the private and public sector, combining technological competence, musical sensibility, humanistic reflection, team-working, and a creative sense.
