About the Area:
The musical result of a recording project is increasingly dependent upon the recording
engineer, and often the recording studio itself can be regarded as a musical instrument.
Our Sound Recording Technology facilities range from labs and workshop spaces to state-of-the-art
studios, live rooms and booths that rival the best in the nation.
We are committed to educating upcoming audio professionals how to successfully interact
with people in a creative environment. We offer guidance in musical and technical
knowledge and promote mental flexibility. Enrolling in our four-year Bachelor of Science
in Music with an Emphasis on Sound Recording Technology degree program means having
time to discover your own creative abilities and ambitions and learning how to help
others realize theirs.
This intensive and interdisciplinary program also provides a superb education in the
liberal arts and sciences. The curriculum is based upon the central notion that an
engineer in audio is a musician with a broad range of scientific and engineering skills.
Over the last 35 years, Fredonia’s SRT program has opened doors for many of today’s
outstanding industry professionals. Recent graduates currently work in state-of-the-art
recording facilities and at leading post-production facilities in the US. They are
active in the creation of the newest recordings by some of the country’s most dynamic
and influential artists.
