The Digital Arts and Design Digital Sound Design degree (offered on campus) lays a solid foundation for a career in music recording, production, live sound, or broadcast. You'll learn post production, mastering, and mixing. And, at DSU, you'll learn it all with the latest technologies.
The digital sound design program is actually a specialization of the digital arts and design degree. This means you'll take core requirements that will prepare you to work on multimedia design teams and give you opportunities for internships and research. Then, your digital sound specialization will build on this. In the end, you'll acquire the experience to work in a recording studio or a live concert venue—and everything in between.
