The Master of Science in Music Technology (MSMT) degree curriculum provides postbaccalaureate education in areas of computer-based music technology, multimedia and interactive design and multimedia production techniques. The primary objective of the program is to bring new and emerging digital arts technologies to students as they relate to a new discipline defined as music technology. The curriculum establishes the creative application of multimedia technology to video, audio and graphic production of arts and educational materials. Included in this field are foundations, methods and theoretical courses which underpin the development of production skills required in using technology in a creative environment. The MSMT degree is offered as a traditionally delivered on-campus degree program. Students can also opt to take the entire program over the internet. This means that the MSMT degree is available to students regardless of geographical location.
