About the Program

In this program you will gain not only the skills and technological aptitude necessary for any actively engaged musician, but cultivate an insight into the mutually dependent nature of music and technology. With such insight, our students actively engage the critical thinking necessary for implementing creative and technical innovation in music.

All Music and Technology students will complete a rigorous unified curriculum that will include courses in music theory, history, composition, production, sound design, instrumental proficiency and technological innovation. This unified curriculum will prepare the student for a future within a field in which technological innovation and implementation is an increasingly critical requisite. The Music and Technology major at Stevens is focused on providing a well-balanced course of study that will prepare the student for the ever increasing demands of today's musicians.

Students may focus their studies in Electronic Music, Composition and Theory, or Sound Recording and Production, by choosing from a host of cutting-edge electives like:

  • Software Instrument Design
  • Electroacoustic Composition
  • MIDI and Electronic Music
  • Scoring for Media
  • Advanced Orchestration
