From the winter semester 2014/15 began a new double master’s degree programme “Audio Communication and Sonology”, as a cooperation between the TU Berlin and the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. The study programme embodies a unique combination of a theoretically based scientific study in the areas of acoustics, audio technology, signal processing and musicology at the Department of Audio Communication at the TU Berlin together with an artistically oriented study in the areas of electroacoustic music, computer music and sound art at the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire. Both institutes possess a long tradition in the exploration and realisation of acoustic media art, stretching back to the 1950s. Since 2000, international collaborations in this area at the TU Berlin have been enabled by the international “Edgard Varèse Guest Professorship for Computer Music” of the DAAD (German academic exchange service).
This double-degree programme opens up for students a double qualification with excellent opportunities for an international professional career. The course of study comprises one year in the subject area of Audio Communication and Technology in Berlin, followed by one year in the subject area of Sonology in The Hague. Graduates will receive a double diploma (M.Sc./M.Son.) from both institutions. Anyone interested should apply for the coming winter semester for the study programme “Audio Communication and Technology” at the TU Berlin, as well as (before 15th February of the following year) for the transfer to The Hague. Six places are available. Further information on the study programme and application procedure may be found at: http://www.ak.tu-berlin.de/menue/lehre/double-degree_audio_communication_and_sonology/.
