A minor in music recording is offered for undergraduate students to provide them with the background necessary to enter the field of audio engineering and to familiarize them with the standards and techniques used in audio recording, editing, mixing and mastering.


Acceptance into the program might require a personal interview by the Thornton School of Music to assure that the student has sufficient musical background and skill.

Students admitted to this minor will be expected to have a minimum GPA of 2.0 and to maintain that average with no grade lower than a “C” for all courses taken in the minor.

Students must apply for this minor, and admission is based on successful completion of MTEC 277x . Generally, students who earn a B or better in this course and have a GPA of 2.0 or higher are admitted. Declared engineering (ENGR) majors with a GPA of 3.0 or higher may be admitted before completing MTEC 277x  .
