I'm thinking about taking the next step in exploring
the world of sound. Can anyone recommend some schools
that might connect some or all of these dots?

- audio engineering
- sound design
- field recording, study & documentation (especially
animals/insects/natural phenomenon that make sound)
- biology? why do animals make sound, what do their
calls/sounds mean?
- music ethnocology - how does sound and music
function in cultures, how does sound and music impact
- impact of society on nature through sound - how does
the shrinking of quiet space impact nature and

I'd like to explore some of these things as part of a
master's or doctorate degree - especially the field
recording, documenting and study of animal/insect
calls. The music ethnocology and sound/society stuff
maybe later...

If anyone can talk about possible schools to consider
and how this might lead to possible careers, I'd love
to discuss.

Thank you,
