Audio/Radio Production and Studies

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Audio/Radio Production and Studies combines courses in the history and theory of the audio medium with a broad range of production-oriented courses that put an emphasis on the development, creation, marketing and distribution of a wide variety of audio content.

The curriculum prepares students for the transformational developments occurring within traditional radio, and the rapid expansion of the many digital distribution platforms being used today, such as web-radio, podcasts, satellite radio, and smartphone apps used for audio/radio formats.
