A combination of practical shop and stage work partnered with conceptual work in the design studio creates a unique opportunity for professional growth in the Sound Design major.
Students selecting this major develop skills in recording, mixing and computer design. Additional design and conceptual experience are offered in a student's third and fourth years, both in the studio and in actual production work.
Webster University is one of the few undergraduate institutions requiring all productions to be designed by students, allowing them to gain valuable experience and professional samples for their portfolio.
The on-campus presence of the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Opera Theatre of St. Louis and Dance St. Louis provides students with a professional working environment.
