Full Sail University (fullsail.edu), is pleased to announce the Music Production Bachelor of Science Online Degree Program. This degree program is specially designed to cater to students who have a variety of relevant knowledge upon entering the degree program, ranging from novice to professional in music technology, musical performance, music theory, and composition.
In the newly developed 32-month program, students will study the history of western music and the life and works of some of its greatest composers and music producers. The materials used are presented by way of podcasts, video interviews, study modules, and guest speakers via live broadcast. A digital portfolio will be created and completed through the duration of the program. The student’s digital portfolio and supporting website are launched early in the curriculum so they are able to continually review and update as the student progresses through the program. Students will also participate in mutual assessment sharing as well as developing online marketing and sales skills.
Upon completion, the graduate’s skill set will include an understanding of contemporary music hardware and software technology, a thorough knowledge of music marketing and business concepts, a solid grounding in music theory, history, and composition. Additionally, the graduate will enter the job market with an online personal portfolio of professional quality music projects produced during the course of studies.
