The bachelor of arts in music and sound recording is a four-year degree program based on the philosophy that musicians should have a working knowledge of the media through which their art is most often heard and that sound recordists should have a working knowledge of the art form they are recording. The program is designed to instruct students in three interrelated areas: 1) music history, theory, and aesthetics; 2) musicianship; and 3) sound recording methodology and technique.
Students will be able to:
1.) … synthesize a broad range of creative and technical frameworks in the analysis of music.
2.) … evaluate mediated music and sound with respect to their cultural and societal context.
3.) … apply technology in the service of aesthetic goals.
All students majoring in the B.A. in music and sound recording must complete 122-123 credits.
