The Music Technology program at the University of Central Missouri is designed to give students professional training in audio engineering as well as music. Unlike many certificate and degree programs in audio engineering, our degree program is designed around the curriculum for a Bachelor of Music degree, the professional baccalaureate degree for music.
Students interested in a music major or minor will be required to take a brief Theory Placement Exam during their freshman orientation session.
The curriculum of the Bachelor of Music in: Music Technology degree is similar to that of a standard Bachelor of Music degree, but the student takes four years of music technology coursework in addition to courses like music theory, music history, aural training, piano, and conducting. With this musical training, in addition to the hands-on training of the music technology courses, graduates of this program will be able to work with musicians on a common ground, enabling them to produce truly musical audio recordings and live sound.
The following Music Technology degree plans have been assembled by the Director, Dr. Eric Honour. The following programs are suggested courses of study. Every student must follow the requirements as outlined in the current Undergraduate Catalog. These files require Adobe Acrobat Reader:
Note that entering any Bachelor of Music degree program at Central Missouri – including the Music Technology program -- requires an Admissions Audition. Music scholarships at UCM are also awarded on the basis of auditions. Auditions are available by appointment throughout the year, but for the best chance at a scholarship, students should audition on one of the scheduled Scholarship Audition Dates.
