Cogswell Announces New Game Audio Concentration


Who creates the sounds you hear in a game? Who builds the programs that drive the way players and sound interact in games? Why not you?

If this is your dream, then check out the Cogswell College’s new Game Audio major. Cogswell Polytechnical College will begin accepting students in the new educational opportunity in the Fall 2010. The program has two tracks, Game Audio Production and Game Audio Programming.

The Production track lets students create audio assets that play within a game, for example the music, sound effects or dialog, add another level of sensory experience to the game play.

The Programming track is for students who wish to setup how audio assets will interact with the player in response to game play. Sounds can trigger actions the player must take or avoid or influence the player’s behavior during the game.

All Game Audio students have the opportunity to work on multi-disciplinary teams in instructor-led projects to gain direct experience in applying game audio skills. These two tracks complement the existing Audio Production and Audio Engineering tracks of the Digital Audio Technology degree program.
