The B.A. in Performing Arts – Audio Technology Concentration allows you to create your own future in the Performing Arts. Our innovative Audio Technology degree includes a broad training program that equips students to enter into a variety of career paths in the field.  Some of the specializations addressed include music recording and production, sound reinforcement for live concerts and events, sound design for theatrical productions and musicals, audio for video and film, and audio for games.  Audio Technology students collaborate with Music and Theatre students and get hands-on experience in our nationally ranked professional roadhouse, the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, our on-site learning laboratory.  Students also participate in masterclasses, develop connections with professional artists, and work alongside dynamic faculty who are leaders in their field.  Most importantly, our students are prepared for today’s highly competitive job market after graduation.
