MA/MST Course Requirements

The following was copied from the course requirements listed in the music section of the Stanford Bulletin, Fall 2009:

MUSIC 154 3 units Composition and Performance of Instrumental Music with Electronics
MUSIC 192A 3 units Foundations of Sound-Recording Technology
MUSIC 192B 3 units Advanced Sound-Recording Technology
MUSIC 220A 4 units Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound
MUSIC 220B 4 units Compositional Algorithms, Psychoacoustics, and Spatial Processing
MUSIC 220C 4 units Research Seminar in Computer-Generated Music
MUSIC 250A 4 units Human-Computer Interface Theory and Practice
MUSIC 320 4 units Introduction to Digital Audio Signal Processing
MUSIC 420 3 units Signal Processing Models in Musical Acoustics
MUSIC 421 3 units Audio Applications of the Fast Fourier Transform

The above courses comprise 35 of the 45 required units. Therefore, 10 units are available for electives. A further requirement is that at least 6 elective units be graduate level courses.

Required Courses by Quarter and CCRMA Electives to Consider

Fall Quarter

MUSIC 192A 3 units Foundations of Sound-Recording Technology
MUSIC 220A 4 units Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound
MUSIC 250A 4 units Human-Computer Interface Theory and Practice
MUSIC 320 4 units Introduction to Digital Audio Signal Processing

Fall Quarter CCRMA Electives to Consider

MUSIC 319 1 unit Research Seminar on Computational Models of Sound Perception, Th 11-12:30, Knoll 315
MUSIC 423 1 unit Signal Processing Research Seminar, Fridays 3:15-5pm, Knoll 315 (Seminar Room)

There is no room for full course electives in a standard 15-unit quarter, but here are some courses to consider proposing a substitution for with your advisor (e.g., if you have already had the material covered in one of the required courses):

MUSIC 256A 1-4 units Software Design and Implementation for Computer Music
CS 106B 3-5 units Programming Abstractions
EE 263 3 units Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems

Winter Quarter

MUSIC 192B 3 units Advanced Sound-Recording Technology
MUSIC 220B 4 units Compositional Algorithms, Psychoacoustics, and Spatial Processing
MUSIC 420 3 units Signal Processing Models in Musical Acoustics

Winter Quarter CCRMA Electives to Consider

There are 5 units available in a standard 15-unit load. Note that you can free up more elective units by charting a non-DSP depth track with your advisor. The list of electives below is not exhaustive. Please feel free to add your own choices for others to consider! See the [#Links] section below for pointers to all available courses.

MUSIC 150 3 units Musical Acoustics
MUSIC 250B 4 units Human-Computer Interface Theory and Practice
MUSIC 251 1-5 units Psychophysics and Music Cognition
MUSIC 253 1-4 units Musical Information: An Introduction
MUSIC 256B 1-4 units Mobile Music
