MEDIA ARTS: AUDIO PRODUCTION A.A.S.
Cayuga’s media faculty have been training students to become audio and music production professionals for more than two decades. Students work in state-of-the-art music recording and broadcast production studios and learn from industry professionals.
This program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in audio and radio production.
Graduates may work in the music recording industry, for radio stations, and in television, motion picture, and video production as recording engineers, audio engineers, audio operators, board operators, sound technicians, or mixers.
Cayuga has articulation agreements for related programs offered by Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College and by SUNY College at Fredonia. For these and other transfer institutions, students should contact their advisor and/or the Coordinator for Transfer and Articulation in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement for more information. Early consultation to plan the most appropriate course sequence will optimize transferability.
Upon completion of the program, students will be able to perform audio functions including music and sound recording and audio programming, mixing, re-recording, splicing, dubbing and over-dubbing, setting up and connecting sound reinforcement equipment on location, determining site characteristics, and mixing live audio.
