Sound Recording Technology (B.M.)

In our program, in addition to taking core courses that focus on legacy recording techniques, you will be trained in the latest recording and mixing methods in our newly refurbished, state-of-the-art recording facilities.

To complement your studies, you will take courses in electro-acoustic music, theater arts, and physics in the School of Humanities and Sciences, as well as work as a paid engineer within Ithaca College's Recording Services work-study program for the duration of your undergraduate studies.

Your skills will be honed and developed over four years in the program and will culminate with an internship in the field during your senior year. You will also create a senior project, acting as producer, recording, mixing, and mastering engineer. This will act as your portfolio piece that will illustrate that you are an entry-level audio professional who not only has a grasp on the audio complement, but who is also a schooled musician.
