      undergraduate or graduate? Stetson is not in Europe, but I will reply in the interest of answering this question for anyone in the USA. I am sure there are others with the same question as you. And if you are interested in studying abroad, we have 2 undergraduate/ bachelors programs that might appeal to you.
      We offer a Bachelor of Music in Music Technology that combines electronic music and recording arts with a traditional conservatory- style curriculum. You must be a traditional instrumentalist or vocalist to be in this track. Students in this track tend to come from the more traditional high school music programs here in the States.
      We also offer a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Art. This is liberal arts degree combined with an interdisciplinary program involving art, music and computer science. You can declare yourself in the "sound" track and would then focus on electronic music and related sound projects as your primary medium. Students in this track tend to come from a more home studio background or have formed their own bands with peers.
      I am the academic advisor for both programs. You can learn more from our web site: http://digart.stetson.edu
      Note: the "sound" track revisions were just approved and so our web site still refers to the older "music" track.
      OK. Commercial over. Back to programming.
