Minor in Audio Production
Webster University is a pioneer in audio education by teaching the subject as it relates to all media while still emphasizing a hands-on approach. Students work with professional-grade equipment during their freshman year.
They produce music recordings, radio spots, run live sound for concerts, learn sound design and engineer audio for video and film throughout their time at Webster. Of equal importance they learn audio history and theory.
A portfolio review and internship are required for graduation. Many of these internships have resulted in employment. Recent opportunities include stints at major recording studios, sound reinforcement companies and radio stations across the country. International opportunities also are available.
The faculty are working professionals in the field as well as educators. They speak frankly about Audio Production as a career choice and available jobs in the industry. Students learn to work in a variety of fields in the industry.
Reflecting Webster's commitment to maintaining an international perspective, the program offers an emphasis in International Audio Production.
