Overview

There is an increasing demand in the world of academic and professional music for liberally educated people who are fine musicians and understand the art, language and science of digital music making. We are one of the few liberal arts colleges in the country to offer a bachelor of arts degree in music technology and have a full-time professor who is a specialist in this area.

Key facts:

The Music - Music Technology major at Transylvania University is structured in a liberal arts context. The student must first be a musician and fulfill requirements that all music majors complete, including ensemble participation, private lessons, composition and recitals.

Graduates who focus on the technical side of music in their careers will benefit from the general music requirements of the program, since accomplished musicians often make the best studio engineers.
