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 many contemporary styles of music 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, own recording studios, are touring internationally with bands, are DJ's and EDM artists, and are working with cutting edge companies in the entertainment industry.
