Recording Arts Degree
Every part of my degree program was designed to look, feel, and function as it is in the industry. Full Sail University's Recording Arts program prepared me for audio recording and production. I focused on the fundamentals of sound, music production, recording, mixing, and post production. During some courses, I had the opportunity to work in professional recording studios while recording live musicians. After completing initial recordings, I practiced mixing sounds and editing recordings.
Full Sail University has prepared me for a multitude of industry positions. Recording engineer, mix engineer, postproduction and game audio engineer, digital audio workstation operator and programmer, music/effects/dialogue editor, live-production engineer, and a variety of other positions in the audio industry.
