For those with an inclination for the audible arts and an ear for patterns, arrangement and audio synthesis, the audio production major at American University may be just the educational choice to jump start a highly successful career.
Though the two are deeply intertwined, audio production focuses on an entirely unique aspect of music. From the initial production of both musical and non-musical sounds, through editing, post-production work and the combination of these sounds with other forms of media (such as videos), audio production encompasses all aspects of sound synthesis and development. With courses in the mixture of sounds, production mixing and mastering, and studio management, aspiring students can sharpen their skills for a bright future in this field.
This major requires 120 credit hours as a prerequisite, 59 major-specific credit hours, and 64 course-specific credit hours—34-39 for core classes, 10 for elective courses and 15 for track specific courses. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is also required.Apply Now
