Bachelor of Science in Music Technology - General

The Bachelor of Science in Music Technology teaches students to master existing technology and gives them tools to innovate and create ideas. Projects range from robots that listen to and play their own improvised music to software that samples and builds music.

Bachelor of Science in Music Technology students will need to consult with the undergraduate adviser to choose a concentration or minor.

Students in the General Concentration follow the rigorous Bachelor of Science in Music Technology curriculum. This standard curriculum lends itself most easily to using the hours of the Breadth Block to pursue a minor in another School on campus -- and students might find these two minors to be especially interesting:

Computing and People: Allows students to gain added expertise in computing as it relates to people. The minor requires 15 credit hours of coursework in the College of Computing.

Industrial Design: Allows students to strengthen skills and understanding of creative problem solving as it relates to design. The minor requires 15 credit hours of coursework in the School of Industrial Design.

While Computing and Industrial Design are good fits for this degree, they are not the only minors possible. For example, students could also use the International Plan for their Breadth Block.
