The Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies: Music Technology degree offers a hands-on practical education of audio, media, live, and music production. The diverse curriculum prepares students for careers in a variety of fields, from recording groups in traditional recording studios, to editing sound effects for video and film, to live sound production with national touring acts.
This unique degree was designed for students who have a strong passion for music and technology, but may also want to explore and specialize in an alternate subject area in addition to Music Technology. Students in this program are able to pursue a minor in an outside field. This coursework is built into the program design, and can be accomplished in the traditional 4-year undergraduate timeframe. For transfer students, the minor is highly recommended, but not required. Therefore, credits from another program or university can easily be transferred into this program.Students interested in the B.A.P.S. Music Technology program often have had experiences playing and performing on an instrument or voice, but those experiences may have been non-traditional or informal in nature. For that reason, an audition is not required to enter this program. Knowledge of music fundamentals is still very important, and those fundamentals are highlighted in specific coursework such a Music Theory and Keyboarding course, and Electronic Composition Workshop.
