Recording Arts Minor

Expand your understanding of recording arts

You can pair this 19-hour minor with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music or a Bachelor of Science degree. It can be a great complement to a Bachelor of Music with a focus in jazz, keyboard, instrumental or vocal performance, because it demonstrates your interest in not only performing, but also recording and producing music.

While in this program, you will also gain access to the University’s state-of-the-art Electronic Music Studio, located in Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. This is a fully operational recording studio and hands-on classroom for music majors and non-majors alike that gives you access to a variety of electronic recording tools and programs.

Additionally, Missouri State’s close proximity to Branson, the live music capital of the country, offers a number of internship opportunities for recording arts minors.

By choosing to minor in recording arts, you can augment your education in the following ways:

  • Gain a better understanding of how music is produced and recorded
  • Develop the skills to produce and record your own pieces
  • Deepen your knowledge of audio techniques.
