DMSA is interested in exploring the posibilities across sound, space, materials, bodies, senses, new media, technologies and the environment. Through staff related research,  assessed critical writing and guest lectures the students become actively engaged in practice-based research and the importance of thinking critically about their work. Many of our students become interested in pursuing further studies and research in their chosen field. DMSA Alumni are currently holding relevant academic and research positions in Academic Institutions in the UK and Europe.

A Sound Collection

A Sound Collection is a series of electronic issues dedicated to student research  and essays.  The aim of this resource is to demonstrate the breadth of insterests and explorations led by our students and to offer a platform for publishing and sharing of ideas. All materias presented here are courtesy of the students. Each issue will be focusing on a particular student and topic. Click here to read more.
