Music Technology Component

The Music Technology Component is a supplemental program, not a degree program, offered by the Boyer College which may be added to most undergraduate and graduate music degrees. The addition of this component generally requires an additional year of study for any degree program.

The Music Technology Component focuses on the creative and pedagogical aspects of music technology, and provides a structured sequence of “tools” courses for those students who desire to use new technologies to enhance their skills as performers, composers, teachers, and scholars. Applicants to programs that include a technology component will be subject to the same audition and matriculation standards as all other students at our college.

This program is designed to provide our students with skills in music technology. Students emerging with a Bachelor of Music degree face a world in which technology is present in every aspect of the music industry and every other industry. Students who lack skills in technology are at a competitive disadvantage when seeking meaningful employment in their disciplines.
