Overview

Music, science and technology are increasingly intertwined. From new kinds of instruments and studio equipment, to computer programs and sound generators, technology has changed the music industry and made creating music more accessible.

The Musical Science and Technology (MST) Minor program focuses on interdisciplinary topics in science and technology applied to music. The goal of the program is to help prepare you for commercial jobs in the audio technology sector and/or for graduate study. The MST Minor is designed for students who already have a good background in the sciences and prior experience with math and computer science courses.

Enrollment in the MST Minor is application-based and limited to students with existing scientific backgrounds, from all faculties at McGill University. Selection is based on previous experience in math, computer programming, and related sciences, expressed interest in the program, and Cumulative Grade Point Average.
