Course description

The study of Multimedia Composition at the University of Music and Drama in Hamburg provides a top-tier education in one of Germany's most vibrant cities. This interdisciplinary, modular program spans two years and culminates in a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree. It welcomes composers interested in media, as well as media artists and computer scientists with a passion for music. The curriculum is designed to be completed in four semesters. Students must complete a written master thesis and an artistic project to graduate. Upon successful completion, they receive a Master of Arts (M.A.) certificate. Since 2010, multimedia composers have had the opportunity to pursue an artistic doctorate, the Dr.Sc.Mus (Doctor of Scientiae Musicae), which is similar to the American Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A.). This advanced program allows for deeper exploration and specialization in the field. The University of Music and Drama in Hamburg offers a comprehensive and immersive educational experience, fostering creativity and innovation in multimedia composition.
