Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Faculty of Arts - Programs

Recently, digital technology has radically transformed the world of music by enabling new pathways for sonic creation, representation, fusion, and circulation, broadening musical horizons, and enabling unprecedented modes of scholarly access and research throughout newly interconnected sonic cultures (including traditional music, popular music, jazz, and the avant-garde) around the globe. This Certificate in World Sound Arts centers upon sounds, techniques, and disciplines from beyond the standard western music conservatory: electroacoustic music, popular music, jazz, world music, music technology, ethnomusicology, and the sociology of music. The Certificate provides recognition of musical training relevant to careers in media arts production, audio design, video game music, sound arts curation, archiving, online digital music repositories, arts organization, community advocacy, public sector work, and music technology.

Students wishing to pursue the Certificate in World Sound Arts must apply through Undergraduate Student Services in the Faculty of Arts by the application deadline for graduation (see Academic Schedule ).
