Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Offered by the Department of Music

The music technology minor is typically intended for students outside the music department that have a strong interest in audio, music recording, and studio production.  The minor includes an introductory music fundamentals course, a four-course sequence of music technology courses (Introduction to Music Technology, Electronic Music, Recording Arts, and Studio Production Techniques), and seven credits of music electives by advisement.  Students in this minor will gain hands-on experience with professional-level recording and production tools and software, and will gain access to studio facilities for the completion of independent class projects. 

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Students will produce musical sequences, notated music, and audio compositions using a desktop music system or MIDI project studio (e.g., music lab workstations)
  • Students will gain hands-on experience with music technology equipment, including microphones, mixers, computer audio interfaces, and signal processors
  • Students will apply common synthesis and audio processing techniques in order to create original sounds for use in musical and other audio productions
  • Students will record live events and studio tracking sessions using standard recording techniques and microphone placements
  • Students will mix complex multi-track projects while applying common signal processing and audio effects using a professional level digital audio workstation (i.e., the Pro Tools HD control room)
