We specialize in live and recorded sound design, engineering and production/post-production; environmental and architectural acoustics for public, commercial and residential spaces; and design and management of audio installations.
You’ll choose courses that focus on the specific techniques, technologies and aesthetics of the music industry and/or of sound as an independent art form, and become familiar with both large-format recording studios and desktop environments. You’ll also study the science and physiology of sound and hearing.
Audio professionals are problem solvers, innovators and artists. Join the revolution.

You’ll form a band or performance project, create, record and produce your music in a studio setting, and perform your work on stage.
