Our degree has been academically designed taking into account the evolution of the audio market in recent years. The evolution of the digital sonosphere has meant a change in the communication paradigm in which radio was the most predominant in the market. The consumption of audio has changed and, as a result, so have the logics, systems and channels of production, distribution and marketing. The new habits of sound consumption are exerting a powerful change in what can already be described as a new cultural industry. Currently, the most demanded profiles to cover this transformation go through the creation, production and distribution of content related to podcasting, audiobooks, social audio and radio as social media in accordance with the features of the contemporary digital ecosystem.

Radio, despite having the listening predominance, has been losing audience for years by not incorporating new listeners to its market. Radio is in the midst of a digital revolution and will have to adapt to the new demand for audio. The main international audio platforms in Spain are investing in exclusive content. This implies a commitment to production in each country, and therefore qualified professionals with the ability to respond to the demands of the market and companies.
