We have been running educational projects since 1996 in the field of electroacoustic music, video art and design, presenting a special role in the faculty, where both of the fine arts and classical music students cooperate in the projects. With the BA programme in electronic music and media arts we cover the gap in the study of electronic music and in wider perspective, specialize in the arts of new media.

Study plan:

• Ground knowledge: philosophy, contemporary aesthetics, network laws, culture and art history, history of music, acoustics
• General professional knowledge: music theory, timbre-solfége , musical informatics and media knowledge, psychoacoustics, electronic music notation, performance practice
• Specialized professional knowledge: computer music projects, composition practice, stylistic exercises in computer music, sound synthesis and analysis
