The synergy of music, technology and liberal arts opens the door to so many different careers, and the diversity between them allows you to create an individually unique path through college.
Why Music Technology at Stetson University?
The music technology minor integrates digital music and audio production with an overview of classical music frameworks. This is a combination of traditional music study with focused courses on composing, recording and performing music with technology — putting yourself on the production and creation side rather than the on-stage performing side.
Our music technology minor is open to anyone with no audition required. Not only can it augment a major in music, but the minor has also been particularly effective for students in computer science, business administration and physics.
Since music technology is a part of the School of Music, you are surrounded by high-caliber musicians to collaborate with on various performances and projects. You also get to participate in music ensembles and learn about the history of excellent music from multiple eras.
All of our music technology courses feature hands-on projects, giving you ample opportunity to practice your art and build your portfolio. Projects will often be refined through multiple revisions and receive ample critiques from faculty and peers in an effort to produce work of the highest quality.
