Music & Entertainment Industry Studies
As one of the most unique programs in the Rocky Mountain region, the Recording Arts emphasis prepares graduates to work as audio engineers with acoustic recording and editing. Students learn from expert faculty on professional equipment while building career-ready portfolios. Recording Arts covers technical fundamentals and then moves beyond the basics to explore theories supporting advanced problem- solving and technique, as well as creative music mixing strategies.
Graduates are found working a wide range of professional areas, including live sound, sound for gaming, post production sound on video and film, radio, sound design for web applications, and, of course in music studios. Our alumni have won Emmy awards
for sound mixing on Game of Thrones and are working with cutting edge companies in the entertainment industry.
The Recording Arts offers both non-audition and audition track programs. The non-audition track does not require any additional application steps after admission to CU Denver.
Complete information about audition track requirements can be found on the auditions and required assessments webpage. All students must first be admitted to CU Denver.
