You don’t just listen to music, you stream it. You beam it to your car by satellite, shuffle it on your iPod, and maybe even spin it on classic vinyl. To call it just ‘music’ seems limiting: audio today includes remixes, podcasts, and compositions made entirely with – and sometimes even written by – computers. That’s good news if you want to make music your career: you can do on a home computer today what decades ago would have required signing with a major label. It’s never been easier to make quality music and help it find an audience.
The first of its kind in the region, the music production and technology major helps you understand not just how to play music, but how to record it, mix it, distribute it and make a profit. It provides practical instruction on the current generation of professional audio software and allows you plentiful time in the studio to hone your craft. The major further encourages internships and offers hands-on experience working live sound at campus events. The major also requires a strong foundation of business courses to show you how to practically apply your skills in today’s rapidly-changing marketplace.
